Combining the universes of two drastically different pop culture programs is this decadent decorated cake design by baker Kylie Mangles from Letterpress Bakery that turns the comical personality of Homer Simpson into a galactic Stormtrooper. The cake creatively gives an identity to the allusive Imperial soldiers from the Star Wars saga.

Mangles' detailed decorated cake is an edible example of the colliding of popular fandoms to create a dessert that appeals to wider demographic of fans of both genres. The cake features dozens of stacked layers of vanilla cake and chocolate icing carved into the body of a Stormtrooper. However, the face is revealed to be that of Simpson with yellow skin, a beard and bright white eyes peeking out from under the Imperial solider mask. The cake is made with expertly laid fondant to capture the authenticity of the characters.
