HAN SOLO IS A HUNK! … A HUNK OF BREAD

See the source image

 

(AP) – “Pan Solo”,that’s what a bakery in the San Francisco Bay
Area has dubbed its 6-foot (1.8 meter) bread sculpture of the “Star
Wars" character as he appeared after being frozen in carbonite in 
“The Empire Strikes Back."
    

Hanalee Pervan and her mother, Catherine Pervan, co-owners of
One House Bakery in Benicia, California, spent weeks molding,
baking and assembling the life-sized sculpture using wood and
two types
of dough, including a type of yeast less dough with a
higher sugar
content that will last longer.

The two worked at night, after the day’s business was done. The sculpture is now on display outside of the bakery, located about
a half-hour’s drive north of San Francisco.


Unfortunately, Pan Solo won’t last forever. The dough eventually
will be composted, not eaten.


So, as a wise Jedi might warn: Don’t use the forks, Luke.
