When one of my best friends asked us if we'd make a Darth Vader-themed birthday dessert for her soon-to-be-five-year-old, I said, "No problem." I should have said: "Your kid is worth all the martial stress that will ensue from a project such as this!" And he is.
Suffice it to say: I am pretty fast and loose with my cooking; my husband insists from straight edges. So, I should stick to the baking and let Jake do all the cake architecture. Mental note for next time!
