So this week it's every Star Wars fan's favorite day - Star Wars Day or May the Fourth be With You!
Well actually our favorite day is whenever the next Star Wars movie comes out - but May the Fourth be With You aka May 4th comes in a close 2nd. Fans across the world (and galaxy) wish each other a happy one across the interwebs. Hopefully it's pretty self explanatory of why it's Star Wars day - but just in case, it's a play on words for May the Force be With You. Get it??!
Anywho, for this Star Wars Day I made some marshmallows. Star Wars themed marshmallows. But I'm playing my Woman Card (thanks Donald Trump!) and only making the women of Star Wars.
The ladies of Star Wars in marshmallow form!
I actually did Princess Leia marshmallows before when I did a countdown to the new movie last year. I loved how they came out so much that I needed to do the other ladies of the movies. There are just some really cool female characters from Jedi to slaves to bounty hunters to princesses and more.
You can see all of the 12 days of Star Wars here!
Start by dip dyeing marshmallows. The Decorated Cookie has shared how to do this fun technique a few times. The colors are very subtle but very light and pretty.
I did these in steps. Dye the marshmallows and let them dry then cut out more marshmallow as detail or use items like mini heart sprinkles for the lips. Jelly beans cut in half made great eyes for Asajj Ventress or goggles for Rey. Leia's iconic hair is made from a Hershey's Kiss with the tips cut off. Melted candy wafers were used to add other detail.
An edible food writer was used to add black dots for eyes.
I tried to make most of the more recognizable female characters either from the movies or other media.
Plop them in a bowl and enjoy on Star Wars Day - or any day for that matter!
Or you can wrap them up as gifts for your fav Star Wars fans and if you did you'd be the bestest friend eva. Seriously you would.
And an early May the Fourth be With You! Thanks so much for stopping by!
