Isn't this a little short for a Stormtrooper cake?

Actually it's from Amanda Oakleaf Cakes, who built it to feed patrons at the Arisia Sci-Fi Convention in Boston.  The cake stands at 6 feet 4 inches tall, weighed at least 300 lbs. It took 600 people to eat it all.

"The building of the Stormtrooper cake was an epic event in and of itself," it says on the bakery's blog. " It took our entire wonderful crew of ten people two full weeks of to put this guy together (although the cake wasn’t added until 2 days before it was to be served).  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 300 lb body –all while keeping every bit of cake tasting light, fluffy, and delicious!"
