Feast your eyes on the most detailed Star Wars AT AT cake ever made.

I've seen a bunch of cakes based on the Star Wars AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport) from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back but this one takes the cake. Literally.

It was made by ChrisTheCookfor a friend’s wedding. The movie version is 72 feet (22 meters) tall, but this grooms cake stood 2' tall. It was lemon raspberry flavored and covered in sculpted fondant and had an amazing amount of detail. Rolled fondant is a type of frosting that includes gelatin and food-grade glycerine, which keeps the sugar pliable and creates a dough-like consistency.

The AT-AT is a large, four-legged walker introduced in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and also appeared in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The detail in this cake is stunning. You can see all the details like the two blasters and two laser cannons on the head. The cargo bay in the back and access panels on the underside look exactly like the do in the film. The AT AT Star Wars is painted to look like authentic battle damage and it stood on a board covered with fake snow.


I would cry if I had to cut into this cake, since it belongs in a museum.

Groom cakes are a Southern tradition and is a gift from the bride to the groom that reflects his personality in his favorite cake flavor. Obviously, Chris' friend is a huge Star Wars fan.

The Groom Cake is usually served at the wedding reception on a table separate from the wedding cake or at the rehearsal dinner for dessert.



This cake is awesome. Everyone should have a friends like Chris.

How could you cut into that cake???

TS Hendrik said...

I would stare at it for an hour not saying a word and then slowly Force it into my mouth.

I'd pretend I was a snowspeeder and then cut down its legs with some fishing line to simulate the tow cable. Then make little "pew pew" noises as I chop off the head to pretend I'm blowing it up. Though I'd also want a tiny Rebel trooper guy so I could say, "Target maximum firepower" and then blow him up. And then you could have second cake for the power generator for the AT-AT cake to destroy. I'm giving this too much thought.

Good question Alex! I added some more pictures. Thankfully they started in the back.

Maurice Mitchell said...

I get it! Force! I love a good pun.

Maurice Mitchell said...

I added more pictures Pat and I'd be the one with the fork crashing into the fake snow yelling, "I'm hit!"

Sweet! [pun intended]

MPax said...

Yum. I hope it's chocolate. My wedding cake was Niagara Falls. :)

My cake had a live goldfish swimming in it. On the side of it was Woody from Toy Story with a fishing rod down in it. My wife and I wanted to keep the fish, but my Father in law ,on a bet, swallowed the fish. Yes I am proud that I married into such a high class Family.

I probably laughed a little too hard on that one David. Cool cake idea though.

Maurice Mitchell said...

That's awesome Mary!

Liesel Hill said...

Awesome! I wouldn't want to cut into it either. And, my question is, how would you? You'd almost have to lay it on it's side or something. I suppose if you wanted to recreate a scene from The Empire Strikes Back, you could cut its legs out from under it and watch it crash, but other than that... Awesome pics!

Where do you even begin to eat something like that?

Maurice Mitchell said...

ROFL Jeremy

Maurice Mitchell said...

Like an elephant. One bite at a time. :)

Maurice Mitchell said...

We have two votes for eating it by taking out the legs! Then you could use a spoon to dig into the underside. Fun times.
