Life-Size Stormtrooper Cake

The building of the Stormtrooper cake was an epic event in and of itself. It took our entire wonderful crew of ten people two full weeks of to put this guy together. Along the way we even had to invent completely new cake making methods so it could be put together modularly onsite, hold its fondant over long vertical stretches, and stand on two beautifully sculpted Rice Kripsy legs that supported his 300lbs body – all while keeping every bit of cake tasting light, fluffy, and delicious!” w/ photos

Garden Of Eden Roofs?

High above the dreary grey streets of the world’s cities, gorgeous gardens blossom in a wilderness of rooftops. These unexpectedly colorful spots provide an oasis of calm away from the bustle of urban streets across the U.S., Europe and as far away as Japan. The elevated scenery ranges from a wildflower meadow on top of a house in London to a neat lawn tended on top of a New York office block. Married couple Diane Cook and Len Jenshel traveled the world capturing their photographs of these stunning sights. It is their latest project after 25 years spent producing images that show how human’s influence their environment.” w/ photos

Quad Table Tennis Game

This is the tennis table game with four separate tables that pits up to four players against one another for unpredictable, exciting play indoors or outdoors. Players can hit the ball onto any opposing player’s table, ensuring angled bounces and caroms that require quick reflexes and dives for point-saving returns. Placed just a few feet apart facing one another, each triangular-shaped, 24″ long x 18″ wide table tapers to a round point in the front; the back edge is pitched 10º, causing balls to bounce up towards a player. Each table has a line for initial serves; a player hitting a ball into the center hole of an opponent’s table scores a point. Sturdy fiberboard and powder-coated steel construction; table legs fold for storage. Includes four tables, four foam-padded wooden paddles, and four balls.” w/ photo
