AT-AT your service

The AT-AT has arrived! 

If you're a Star Wars Fan you'll know what it is, the Emperial Transport Carrier from Empire Strikes Back. 

It's a Groom's Cake for our friend Jason. We called in a bunch of Jason's RISD alumni friends to come and decorate it. The head and body is cake, the legs and bottom support is wooden and covered in sugar paste. I baked and covered and left the details to the guys... and they went to town! 



Look at the details... side and under mounted guns, small painted and shaded details and precision shaped pieces. If it didn't take them 60 hours, I might consider hiring them! 

Just joking, it was a labor of love for them and they had an incredible time doing it. 

Just look at the details on the legs! 

One of the guys even painted a back drop for it.











Here's the AT-AT without it's skin.... 







 
And here's a picture of the painting process... 









Update.... Catch the At-At at the following sites... it's become an internet sensation.... 


I'd also like to thank the following people for their incredible help with this.... (actually they did most of the work, I helped! )
