The Star Wars merchandise machine is in full death-march, and we're already sick of the Force-sploitation. But this offbeat little gimmick has us smiling–and jonesing for some sweets.
Los Angeles restaurant Faith & Flower this week teased on Instagram their limited-time, off-menu dessert tray based on characters in the Star Wars movie franchise.
Eater LA reports,
A mignardise plate, of course, comprises a series of small one-bite dessert options, usually involving chocolate, cookies, and other simple stuff. Not so at Faith & Flower, where pastry chef Josh Graves is taking the opportunity to meticulously handcraft everything from a dark (read: evil) chocolate Death Star bon-bon to a frozen block of chocolate 'carbonite' carrying the encased outline of Han Solo himself.
The coup de grace may well be the gray Millennium Falcon, which is predictably also made from chocolate, but has more detail than you ever thought possible. Thin, perfectly scaled, and astonishingly intricate, the bite-sized bit of dessert is only for the hardcore fans — or, y'know, anyone with a sweet tooth.
We hear the Star Wars dessert tray will be available through December.
