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 …”

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…

Oh. Wow. Star Wars cookies. *geeky shiver* Wonder if I could use the Force to summon a set of cookie cutters like that? They’d go well with the Princess Leia cinnabuns.

I work at a preschool and the kids are constantly playing star wars I would be THE BEST teacher if I brought these in!:) It amazes me how things like star wars are classic and each generation gets into it!

Star Wars was the first movie I saw that started with the big 20th Century Fox fanfare at the beginning. To this day when I here that fanfare I expect Star Wars to start showing…I’m disappointed 99% of the time….

Rona Y said...

Oh my gosh! I NEED those! Why oh why can’t there be a Williams-Sonoma in my area? I’ll have to check if they’ll deliver to Canada!

I remember when Star Wars (the original which later became Part IV) first came out. I was in the 3rd grade–does that make me old? It was exciting when I was 8, and it’s still one of my favourite movies. I must admit, I hate Parts I, II, and III. Why did they do that to my favourite movie series of all time?

Natalie said...

My husband is a huge fan, and has, in turn, created a huge fan in me and my daughters. They would absolutely be thrilled to make cookies in Yoda shapes so they can hear their daddy’s impression of Yoda “Eat them, I will!”

He has been a BIG HUGE fan of Star Wars since he was 3 years old, he is now 10 and WOW would I be the most awesome mom like ever to surprise him with these cookies!!

OH MY GOSH. I would flip out for these. OKay, I’m kind of flipping out. Do you know how much my adorably nerdy family would love these? Cookies EVERYDAY!

I didn’t see any of the Star Wars movies for years, but when we got a giant new TV about a year ago, I knew exactly what the first movie needed to be.

R2D2 is just the best!!! Or is it Darth Vader? Episode IV was super. Love the cookie cutters. I know some twin fans who would love ‘em! Go Bakerella – make some Star Wars cake pops!

Jessica said...

My 6-year-old is a Star Wars fanatic! For his 5th birthday, he asked for a cake with “a Death Star, and Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker having a light saber duel, and some Tie Fighters.” And I had already told him birthday kids get to have whatever kind of cake they want! So that’s how I learned how to make Tie Fighters out of Whoppers and Oreo Crisps. :)

Oh. My. Gosh. I cannot tell you how much I love these. Just this past year I hosted a 3 part Star Wars marathon with some of my best friends. I made Wookiee cookies, Bossk brownies and Yoda soda, but it obviously was not complete without these cookies! Oh shucks, I guess I’ll just have to throw another marathon party…

I love Star Wars! I used to be an absolute fanatic, but I’ve mellowed out a bit in my adulthood lol, I’ve liked Episode IV: A New Hope the best. It’s like discovering a whole new world of possibilities along with Luke. My favorite character has always been Princess Leia, I have long brown hair that I wound up into the classic Leia-do for Halloween one year.

Fun stuff!

Oh my husband and daughter would SOOOO love to have some Star Wars cookies! They are hugs fans (and my daughter is only 4). I tease the two of them all the time because they have ears that turn out slightly on top, I call them Yoda ears.

My dad dressed as up as Darth Vader for one Halloween when he was kid. And we’re not talking Darth Vader out of a bag. He has a pretty awesome authentic mask (to go with his Storm Trooper helmet he had too) and made his costume by hand! IT LIT UP! He was like, 12 when he made it. When my brother and I were kids (and old enough), we would run around the house as Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper. Classic.

My only grandson got very sick last year and my daughter was so worried she broke down and let him watch whatever he wanted (he doesn’t watch tv so this was a big deal). He picked the original Star Wars – which he only knew about from some vintage toys. He loves LOVES Star Wars and I would LOVE to make him some cookies with these.

I too would have not been able to resist the power of Star Wars cookies cutters. I’m one of the Star Wars generation myself.

My favourite film of the trilogy is actually Return of the Jedi. I’m always told that it’s the cheesiest of the films and that I should be ashamed of my preference.

My husband and I often quote yoda to each other “Do or Do not. There is no try”. It seems to be a theory that’s close to your heart too what with all your fantastic creations.

Sara Conley said...

Random personal Star Wars trivia – I was 26 years old before I saw the Star Wars movies. (I’m 30 now.) Not sure what rock I lived under growing up. :) I took a weekend, had a marathon and watched all 6 in a row, in order of their release…older movies first, newer ones second. Gotta say I’m not a fan of the new ones.

As a sidenote, pretty please share a yummy sugar cookie recipe. The recipe I have is gross. It’s so gross, my husband “sneaked” the leftovers of the cute (but gross) Valentines cut out cookies i made this year to his office and didn’t ‘fess up that he brought them.

My husband totally loves Star Wars and of course so do my boys. One of my favorite memories was the look on my oldest sons face when we took him to Disney for Star Wars weekends and he saw the “real” Storm Troopers at the entrance gates. He was amazed. :)

When I was pregnant with my DD my Star Wars obsessed DH dreamed of the day he could sit and watch Stars Wars with her. Here we are only 5 years later and our DD will sit for hours with her daddy watching Star Wars movies together. She’s definitely daddy’s girl!

StarWars was the one thing my older brother and I had in common when we were little,now as adults it would be neat to give him this for his 2nd fathers day!

Growing up, my brother and cousins LOVED Star Wars, but I don’t think I ever really watched it (even though it was on a constant loop, lol). Then I got married and when my husband found out- we had an instant marathon, lol. We watched them in the order the movies were released. What can I say, I’m a fan now, lol.
