As promised, version one of the storm trooper cake project.
Yeah, it looks a little bit like a seagull was having some intestinal problems before flying into my house, but surely you can see... okay, so I won't have to pay royalties to Lucas any time soon.
That was done with a modified marshmallow fondant. Modified because I just can't follow directions ever. Anyhow, I think attempt number two will be with marzipan. Mostly because I like the taste.
On a brighter note, I made a really good salsa verde out of the tomatillos in the garden. However, it's a good idea to cut serrano chilis in half before roasting them because otherwise they plump up and explode. The oven may never be the same.
