Following on from the hilarious is my hedgehog fucked thread, I thought I'd pick up my tools and make another cake. Specifically for BIL's big 30th birthday party.

Be honest, is there any saving this? Or am I destined to a life where people point at me in the street and laugh? wink

Strangely, it reminds me of a spider

thistlescot Sun 29-Jul-18 22:44:37

A very grumpy one 😂

ToDarnHot Sun 29-Jul-18 22:45:26

It's very, er, 'rustic'. Do you have a small child you can blame?

OuEstPierreLapin Sun 29-Jul-18 22:45:30

Lol, It's not the cake you're looking for!

Tbf, it's no bad. Could do with a domed top.

Why is it flat??

LeighaJ Sun 29-Jul-18 22:47:39

It looks like an albino Frankenstein. flowers

Needs a round top...

Maybe one more layer with a lot of icing or add whipped cream on top before serving.

I would happily pay professional cake prices for that.

It embodies the epic struggle of the force so succinctly.

Your stormtrooper looks sad and anxious.

ladyvimes Sun 29-Jul-18 22:49:53

It looks a bit like it’s been sat on.

Pass it over here. I'll eat the evidence so nobody ever has to know.

Actually, I confess it looks rather cute. Er, stormtroopers aren't supposed to look cute, are they?

CrystalMethHog Sun 29-Jul-18 22:52:26

It's flat because I'm going to put another smaller cake on top of it grin

I really don't know how to link my previous thread but trust me, I've got form.

VelociraptorRex Sun 29-Jul-18 22:57:38

It's way better than anything I could do! What cake is going on top of it??

CrystalMethHog Sun 29-Jul-18 22:59:30

It's a sponge covered in black and I'm putting the Star Wars Logo on it and some stars.

That failing I might just cover it with a baseball cap. Call it stormtrooper bad hair day

If the request was for a very small stormtrooper who looks like he's straining to take a shit, then you've fulfilled the brief perfectly.

If you do an image search for 'stormtrooper cake' there are a lot of flat topped ones.

It's really very inconsiderate of film makers and fiction writers not to have come up with some villains and heroes who can easily be represented with a couple of sponge cakes and icing.

Iamagreyhoundhearmeroar Sun 29-Jul-18 23:02:50

It looks extremely pissed off

GummyGoddess Sun 29-Jul-18 23:03:11

I remember your other thread, I thought the hedgehog turned out rather well!

YouBetterWORK Sun 29-Jul-18 23:03:40

Get some Lego stormtroopers, maybe Yoda and Chewbacca too to put on top of it, like they are having a party on a stormtrooper 'stage'. Just to cement in that yes, this is a star wars cake grin

I think it's ok OP, I'm a big Star Wars fan and it's stormtroopery enough for me!

mogloveseggs Sun 29-Jul-18 23:05:12

I did the same sort of cake for dh last year. So hard! Mine looked a bit pained/puzzled grin i put a small cake on top like you’re planning and covered that with stars then put ds’s Star Wars lego figures on with the candles.

StorminaBcup Sun 29-Jul-18 23:05:56

I remember your hedgehog cake grin.

He looks like a stormtrooper with short man syndrome. But it's still much much better then anything I'd conjure up grin

Would you hate me if I told you I first thought it was a toilet? I thought you'd stuck stormtrooper stickers on a loo/toilet seat.

Knowing it's cake just makes it better! Now I love it. grin.

NotAsGreenAsCabbageLooking Sun 29-Jul-18 23:06:54

I made an ewok cake once.. the stress!!!!

I agree, it needs a domed top.

StorminaBcup Sun 29-Jul-18 23:10:23

Are you aiming for something like this? Everyone will know what it is when it's finished although I think you need make the eyes a little less triangular if that helps?
