Master Baker Leverages The ‘Force’ To Help Create Star Wars-Themed Macarons

Just when we thought macarons couldn’t get any better, this baker went on to turn these delightful confections into our favorite pop culture characters. California-based baker Katrina Moon has been making a name for herself with her adorable treats. Her most striking confectionery creation so far are her Star Wars macarons which feature cute versions of popular Star Wars characters.

Baked goodies in the form of Baby Yoda, Chewbacca, Ewoks and Jawas are a real treat for the eyes. And we’re pretty sure they taste as pleasant as they look. Each cute character is easily recognizable as Moon made sure to include all the vital details on each confection. Baby Yoda, for example, comes in notable brown robe along with its long ears and green skin. Chewbacca, on the other hand, has his iconic bandolier slung from his shoulder. And the Ewok has its signature hood along with its green spear.

 

This Baker Creates Cute Star Wars Macarons That Are Too Cute To Eat

Are you a Star Wars fan? Can you name all 4 characters? Anyone going to see Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker on Dec 20th? I haven’t been to a movie theater in 5 years. I like to watch movies on demand in the comfort of my home (aka ? ?). I have seen all the Star Wars movies but I’m confused half the time…who, why, when, where, what ?. I couldn’t help but throw in baby Yoda from The Mandalorian tv series. Have you seen it? The tv commercial looks really good and who doesn’t like baby Yoda right? Decorations are fondant, royal icing, color dust, gel color and the spear is matcha green tea Pocky Sticks ?. Who knew they would come in handy for these macarons. My usage of gel color for shading is questionable, I’m just not very good at painting nor do I have a good sense of light/depth perception ?. PS. They are 3 inches in height just in case you’re wondering how big they are. . . . #???????

Each macaron measures 3 inches in height which is the average size of regular macarons. Moon reveals that she uses fondant, royal icing, color dust and gel color for the decorations. She also uses matcha green tea Pocky sticks for the Ewoks’ spears. These popular characters in their chibi versions would surely melt every Star Wars fan’s heart, and make them drool at the same time. But these sweet treats may be too cute to eat. Can you possibly bite Baby Yoda when he’s giving you that innocent smile? We highly doubt that.

Aside from the Star Wars treats, Moon has also created other equally impressive edible pop culture characters. There’s Baymax, Snoopy, Winnie the Pooh, Pikachu, Totoro, Minions and many more.

 

“Each batch of macarons typically takes me anywhere between seven to 15 hours spread over two to three days. Since I work full time during the day, at night is the only time that I can bake.”, she reveals.

What would you rather be doing? Joy-riding, cooking/baking, shopping, eating, meditating or sleeping? . . I’d rather be baking because it’s like meditating for me. . . I didn’t want to waste scrap fondant so I ended up with that not-so-attractive forest green bag. I really wanted to make a brown shopping bag, but ended with an oversized purse ?. . . . . #pusheen #pusheencat #pusheenfanfriday #pusheenthecat #pusheenlove #pusheenbox #pusheens #macarons #macaron #frenchmacarons #foodart #macaronstagram #desserttable #dessert #f52grams #thebakefeed #kawaii #cute #kawaiioftheday #kawaiicute #kawaiikitty #bakefromscratch #bakefeed #abmlifeissweet #cutefood #vscofood #cornersofmyworld #myeverydaymagic #cookiegram #decoratedcookies

Will you ? my ?? Which one is your favorite? If you saw my story on Wednesday, I messed up on Tigger and Eeyore. I was contemplating whether I should redo them or not, and ended up redoing them ?. Not sure if I’m dedicated or just crazy. Maybe a little bit of both…dedicated to craziness ?. I don’t know if I like how Tigger turned out, but they were much better the 2nd time. Decorations are done with fondant, royal icing, edible marker and color dust. I made the ? sprinkles and ? with royal icing. I got the ?? sprinkles at ?. . . . . #instacookie #instadessert #disneyfood #winniethepooh #winnie #pooh #poohbear #tigger #eeyore #piglet #disneyeats #disneycharacters #disneycharacter #macaron #macarons #frenchmacarons #instasweet #sugarcraft #macaronlover #pixar #macaronslady #cupcakeproject #wiltoncakes #instacookies #macaroon #thisweekoninstagram #disneypixar #macaronlovers #macaronslover #lovetobake

2nd installment of #sixmonthsofcakes with a group of talented bakers hosted by lovely @chahrazadscuisine @sweets_by_joana @sashacakeschicago. The theme is “Not So Red Valentine”. Be sure to check out the hashtag #sixmonthofcakes. Can Valentine’s Day be a celebration of ? and support of all kinds? Like these monster bff’s will always have each other’s backs. It is rare that I fill my macarons, but I’m actually giving these to a friend. The filling is strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream to match the @pockyusa stick flavor. I did eat one for quality assurance ?. I usually don’t eat my decorated macarons, but I was curious what it tasted like with a Pocky stick. The verdict….”it’s delicious!”

Are you a #pokemon fan? Can you spot the “animal” that photobomb this picture? I remember how popular #pokemongo game was a few years ago. I was never into games. The only game that I ever conquered is the original Nintendo Super Mario Bros ? in the early 90’s. Getting infinite lives by kicking the ?, jumped over the flag pole and saved the ? multiple times ?. I played 8 hrs a day for a whole month during one summer to accomplish that. This post is #gameinspiredbakecollab hosted by the beautiful, sweet and always supportive @emyraybakes and @majestical_macarons. I wanted to do Pac Man at first, then changed my mind and did Super Mario. I didn’t like how it turned out and switched to #animalcrossing. Didn’t like how it turned out either, so I scrambled last minute to complete these.
