A Darth Vader Cupcake

I did not go to Walt Disney World for the grand re-opening of Star Tours last weekend. I didn't get to stand in line for pictures with Darth Vader, nor did I have a chance to say "Aren't you a little short for a stormtooper?" to an actual Imperial Stormtrooper. Through some strange twist of fate, however, half of my friends were in Florida last weekend even though they couldn't tell you the difference between an X-Wing and a TIE Fighter. Yes, it was horribly unfair, but they did come back with some fantastic pictures. Darth Maul, Chewbacca, Twileks, Gamorreans. They were all represented, but my favorite picture wasn't a character or a parade or even my friend's husband and son wearing R2D2 Mickey ears. It was this little Darth Vader cupcake.

The Dark Lord of the Sith turned into a $4 confection that was the joy of a child's afternoon made me smile. And that's what things like Star Wars Weekends, and just being a Geek, are all about. Enjoying what brings you happiness and forgetting about the real world for just a little while.  Thank you little Darth Vader cupcake, and may the chocolate filled Force be with you.  Always.


  1. If you eat too many, you'll get Sith to your stomach.

  2. Looks tasty, and I hope it was, for $4!!

  3. Nic, I forgot to mention, when you cut the cupcake in half, there was frosting in the shape of a mickey head!


If you've got something to say, this is the place!
