They just called down the wrath of disney’s lawyers.


#3

pastry chef Josh Graves is taking the opportunity to meticulously handcraft everything …

Handcraft? Does that include pouring choco into a mold? Or did he carve them with a tiny chisel?


#4

If he made the mold himself, I’m comfortable with calling it hand-made. Do Disney sell a chocolate Death Star mold?


#5

Well, there’s a Death Star ice cube mold that might work suitably.

Ditto for Han:

But how do you mold chocolate with the kind of detail shown on that Millennium Falcon? Does it require a blend with an unusual preparation method?


#6

I agree… and my opinion is of paramount importance.


#7

The light saber is a nice touch. Everything else looks like it comes from molds, as Jorpho pointed out. Thinkgeek has a M Flacon ice cube mold, but it doesn’t seem quite as detailed (mb the dish is added later?)

Still, that dessert looks… sweet!

      What's going on?

                  HAN
      Our position is correct, except... 
      no restaurant!

                  LUKE
      What do you mean? Where is it?

                  HAN
      Thats what I'm trying to tell you, 
      kid. It ain't there. It's been totally 
      blown away.

                  LUKE
      What? How?

                  LUKE
      Look at him. He's headed for that 
      taco truck.

                  HAN
      I think I can get him before he gets 
      there... he's almost in range.

The taco truck begins to take on the appearance of a monstrous overpaid copyright lawyer.

                  BEN
      That's no taco truck! It's a Disney lawyer.

                  HAN
      It's too big to be a lawyer.

                  LUKE
      I have a very bad feeling about this.

You can’t win, but there are alternatives to litigation.

      The approach will not be easy. You 
      are required to maneuver straight 
      down this trench and skim the surface 
      to this point. The target area is 
      only two centimeters wide. It's a small 
      thermal exhaust port, right on the rear
      of the lawyer. The shaft leads 
      directly to the digestive system. A 
      precise hit will start a chain 
      reaction which should destroy the 
      lawyer.

A murmer of disbelief runs through the room.

                  DODONNA
      Only a precise hit will set up a 
      chain reaction. The shaft is ray-
      shielded, so you'll have to use proton 
      torpedoes.

Use the forks.

Luke, at that speed will you be able to counter file in time?
LUKE
It’ll be just like Municipal Court back home.


#13

I didn’t even realize that was supposed to be a lightsaber. Oops.

Now I’m trying to figure out if the baked whatsit it’s leaning on is of any significance.


#14

It’s a Wookie Cookie! duh! :wink:


#15

Bring me the head of Darth Vader!


#16

So, the dish on the falcon has to be a separate molded piece (duh), but the color and texture surprise me. Sure, some blue food coloring would make it go grey, but not as light as that second pic. Could be the camera color correction.

Or it could be a higher fat chocolate so it starts off lighter to begin with. That could explain the rounded, not crisp corners.

I need to get into chocolate as I have been prone to threaten. (Where’s my conch machine!!)


#17

These are available molds on Amazon.

Tho the flacon mold would have to some extra attention to get the dish upright.


#18

“their limited-time, off-menu dessert tray based on characters in the Star Wars movie franchise”
Ummmm.
Big whoop.
All those moulds have been available for years.
Obviously the restaurant owner knows the other or paid for this advertising/article

Hi - correct URL for the restaurant is: www.faithandflowerla.com
