They Got Me

The other day I was doing a little impromptu shopping. I had already spent more than I wanted and I was about to pass the Williams-Sonoma store. I said to myself. “Walk faster. Faster. Don’t look in. You don’t need anything else. Whatever you do…

…don’t stop…

Don’t look in the …”

photo

Dang. They got me.

I really tried not to go in, but how could I be complete without these Star Wars Cookie Cutters. I knew if I left empty handed, I’d wish I had bought them in the off chance someone I know wants Boba Fett cookies one day. So I went in, telling myself the whole time I would just have a peek. I can resist.

IMG_0100

I can resist so well that I only bought two. One for me and one for you. Okay, one for one of you.

IMG_0033

Now, I like to bake to go along with a giveaway if I can, but I knew I wouldn’t have enough time to make and pipe these this weekend and I just couldn’t wait to show you these cutters. Plus, my piping skills might deter you from wanting to try them. Piping royal icing is a skill I need to work on, but the way to go if you’re up for it. They’d still be super cute just like this photo from the back of the box, though.

IMG_0079

The cutters have plungers that make impressions in the sugar cookie dough as you cut shapes.

IMG_0066

You can whip up some Storm Troopers…

IMG_0072

A Dark Lord perhaps.

IMG_0075

Maybe some Boba Fett’s just so you can say the name over and over.

IMG_0073

And you have to make Yoda, of course. Make him you should. And eat him you shall.

But… but wait… where’s Chewbacca and R2-D2? What’s up with that? I want to nibble on a little Wookiee. And maybe a little Harrison Ford.

They need a second edition. Fingers crossed.

IMG_0052

The set comes packaged in a cute box with a recipe for cookies and icing.

Besides the kiddies going gaga for these, I think it would make a great gift for Daddy’s Day. Well, it might make some Daddy’s Day, not all.

Find them at Williams-Sonoma or…

You can enter for a chance to win a Star Wars Cookie Cutter Set here:

• Leave a comment on this post sharing something about Star Wars. Your favorite character? Favorite movie? How many star wars figurines your son has? Or maybe your husband? Or you? Whatever works.

• Deadline to enter is Saturday, May 22 at 12:00 noon ET. Sorry, Time’s UP. Winner Below.

• One winner will be chosen at random and announced sometime Saturday.

May the force be with you.

Oh man… your Star Wars stories were a real treat to read. So fun. Thank you for sharing. Wish I could give you all a set of these cutters. But I only have one set to give away and that one is going to Commenter 3034.

shannonwilli – congrats and tell your husband to brush off his yoda costume. Fun times ahead.

Me and my boyfriend have bonded spending many hours playing the Xbox game “Star Wars Battlefront 2″. I’m not a huge Star Wars fan (he is), or a video game girl (he is too), but I LOVE that game. I would love to get these cookie cutters to make cookies for him! So fun!

Valerie said...

I love Star Wars- the originals, not the prequels. So many great lines. My favorite thing, though, is probably the John Williams Score. When I hear the music I just get all nostalgic. My favorite is the music played when Luke is looking at the moons at night in the original.
Anyway- love the cookie cutters!

R2-D2 is easily my favorite. My husband even bought me the LEGO figure of him online! I plan on getting the pancake molds from Williams-Sonoma.

Susan said...

Oh my. I would have had to go right in and get a set too! (and I WILL get a set if I don’t win!)

My husband & brother in law would just flip if I made these for them! They are both huge fans. Last year for Christmas I got the brother in laws wife a Star Wars cookbook so she could make him stuff. :)

My husband LOVES Star Wars. We have a very large replica of the death star made out of legos sitting on our desk and about 7 lego space ships on the shelf above. Our three-year old is already in to playing with them so I see much Star Wars and many legos in my future. These would go well with that!

My husband would love these! We have a replica light saber and I don’t even know how many figurines.

I was never in to Star Wars until I had my son. He’s 7. We go to Disneyland and he’s in to the Star Tours thing and the Darth Vader thing where they train little Jedis or whatever. I would love to make these little cookies for him! ADORABLE!

My husband is actually a HUGE Star Wars fan. When we started dating (in high school) three walls of his room were covered with Star Wars figurines. I would love to win these to make him cookies.

Sharlene said...

The boyfriend and I wholeheartedly agree that we enjoyed the original 3 movies more than the newer 3 (although I’ve only seen 2 of the newer ones). These would be so much fun to have!

I would love to win these for my nephew. He and his parents are Star Wars crazy and they would go nuts over these cookies! Thanks for the chance!

My boyfriend is obsessed with Star Wars and he was upset that I haven’t seen the 3 original so recently he made me watch 4 & 5 and we’re watching #6 soon. He’s turning me into a star wars fan! =)

I used to play Star Wars with the boys in my neighborhood growing up. Since I was the only girl, I *always* got to be Leia.

Julie said...

My brother NEEDS to have these in his life. He still has his R2D2 lamp that he got when he was 6. Let’s see… Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw in the theater AND the first movie we watched on our brand new VCR years later. And when they re-released them (before the prequels came out), I was in college and camped out all night for opening night tickets (for each of them, so 3 times). Oh, and of course, I was Leia for Halloween when I was about 5. Super freaking cute.

May 20, 2010 11:40 PM

Robin said...

If I won these, I would be the coolest Mama EVAH! My 7 y.o. son has recently become obsessed with all things Star Wars. As a matter of fact, we just bought one of the HUGE Lego Star Wars sets…..and it’s spread out all over the kitchen island.

I am the biggest Star Wars geek there is! Well, maybe not the biggest in the whole world, but I am a huuuuuge fan. My heart will always belong to the original trilogy, but my nephew, who’s 5, has become a fan because of the new Clone Wars TV show. Someday I’ll introduce him to the real good stuff.

I’m not the biggest Star Wars fan, but I was in Target and they had a stuffed Yoda. I couldn’t pass it up. He hangs out on top of the bookshelf in the living room so he doesn’t get bitten by our dog.

I remember watching the movie in the theater when it first came out. That year, my brother got all sar wars toys for presents and we played with them for hours. Now my son has a huge collection. He prefers the galactic heroes toys, the ones that look a bit cartoony with really big feet. He also loves his star wars legos! He wants his next birthday party to be star wars themed. Cool giveaway, thanks so much for having it. I’d love to see your finished product!

My brother is convinced that he became a Star Wars fan in the womb. His mom went to see the first movie while pregnant with him and he says it was so amazing it made that deep of an impression on him. Of course I was forced to watch all the Star Wars movies over and over and over again growing up with him. It’s a fun thing that we share :)

Oh my goodness, those are just adorable! Must have! I’m partial to Han Solo myself, as a young Harrison Ford just gets me. That said, the Ewoks make me giggle, so I’d love to see an Ewok cookie, too!

Briana Moore said...

I am a girl who LOVES Star Wars married to a man who could care less. ha :) I was raised on the movies, I own Star Wars Trivial Pursuit, and yoda brings me much joy. I did not realize that EVERYONE didn’t like Star Wars until college, and still made it my floor theme when I was an RA (the girls didn’t mind when they got their cute Yoda Sweatshirts with the SLogan “the force is strong with this one”. I now work with children full time, and this helps me form an instant bond with the boys. It’s cheesy to say, but Star Wars has really made my life more enjoyable in the most nerdy, lovable, and tangible of ways. :)

Oh my god, you would be a life saver! It’s my little brother’s birthday in 7 days and I still do not know what to get him! He is a huge starwars fan (and a great baker. Actually the only good one in the family…) but I always thought that it would be a bit lame to get him a star wars themed shirt. And what would be cooler then these cookie cutters. Thank you so much for a chance to win this!

My 5 year old LOVES Star Wars. My husband was a huge fan so it kind of rubbed off on the little one, They watched the movies together, played with toys together, it was their thing big-time bonding. In fact, the first movie we took our son to was Star Wars:Revenge of the Sith wearing his “Who’s your Daddy?” Darth Vader onesie. Granted he was only 4 weeks old and slept through the whole thing but he was there! Oh yes we must have these! :)

Oh my goodness, my 5 year old saw these with me(he loves checking out the cake bites) and went CRAZY. He is a Star Wars nut.(the origionals, not so much the prequels) He was Luke for halloween last year and still wears his costume all the time. His favorite though is “Dark” Vadar. He’s already picked his costume for this year. He also loves to cook with his sister and I and would have a blast with those cookie cutters.

How awesome! I could definitely get some use out of Star Wars cookie cutters.

Last year for Halloween I made my husband a jedi costume because he looks so much like Obi-Wan a la Ewan McGregor. We visited some friends that night (in costume) and one of them went crazy over it. He put on his Star Wars LP and the jedi robe and danced to the disco version of the Star Wars theme for quite a while. So of course, when his birthday rolled around in January, I knew exactly what to give him.
