Love Star Wars? Well now’s the perfect time to eat your feelings, as Downtown Los Angeles restaurant Faith & Flower unveils a limited-time off-menu dessert tray based on the massive movie franchise.
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.
Rumor has it this is a limited-time only sort of thing available off menu until December, thanks no doubt to the skill and time it takes to create. But the next time you’re in the mood for an absinthe-candied lightsaber or caramel-filled Darth Vader head, at least you’ll know where to guide your X-wing.
