There they were, a whole pile of pears with a sign that said “Bosc Pears 79¢ each”. I stood there staring at them for a while, trying to make the connection – I knew there was one. Then it hit me: Bossk, the feared bounty hunter and Bobba Fett’s BFF! I made a little squeal of delight when I realized that his head shape and coloring perfectly matched the Bosc Pears. Another Star Wars Food Art project, WOOHOO!!!
The Force Awakens comes out in 2 weeks. You already have your tickets. You already have a babysitter (if you could find one willing to be at your house until 4 am on a school night. Though I am thinking the Star Wars movie release date and the day after should be considered national holidays.)
You probably already have some sort of costume. (If not, we have plenty of DIY and store bought ideas here on the blog – just remember, no masks or weapons at the cineplex!)
So the remaining question is, have you planned your food?
When you are in the habit of making food “art”. You are in constant search of appropriate food “glues” that last and don’t need to be refrigerated right away. Marshmallow cream, soy or peanut butter, and melted chocolate have been the go-tos up to this point. But my new favorite is spray cheese!
This is a take on the perennial favorite pigs-in-a-blanket. Though we have taken the pigs out and added ships. We took the pigs out because, here at May the Fourth, we are talking about Star Wars, not PIGS IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!
Don’t you call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease!
(C-3PO to R2-D2 right before they enter the escape pod, in the beginning of Episode IV)
Well, an R2-D2 glob of grease is EXACTLY what we are going for here… So let the melted cheese fun start!
This was our very first venture into molded Star Wars cheese heaven…it was super easy compared to carving, which we had done in previous years.
