A few weeks ago, I gathered with my geekiest friends to watch Star Wars. It was May the Fourth, and we had ourselves a little party with themed food and favors.
Because that’s what geeks do.
So… I, being a crafty geek, I prepared for the party by spending the last two weeks of April making a papier-mâché tauntaun in which to serve gummy worms or sour vines, or some sort of other delicious squiggly treat. And I also made a little shrinky-dink Luke to keep warm in them…
I thought maybe I’d try to do a tutorial on how to make your own tauntaun gummy worm tray… but all the in-progress shots turned out blurry and dark, so I’d have to draw it, and that could take a while. So don’t hold your breath for that… I’ve got other stuff a-brewing too— a new travel map is in the works— I went to San Francisco y’all!
Oh, but wait… there’s more Star Wars…
I also made a pretty awesome Stormtrooper Cheeseball. I got the idea from this food blog. She used black olives for her markings, but I do not like olives, so I bought black sesame seeds instead. Fancy… though a bit imprecise in their placement and difficult to manage.
We also had Tatooweenies in Blankets, 7-Leia Dip, Princess Leia’s Buns, Carbonite Crackers, and Yoda Soda (adult recipe). There were also balloon light sabers. Yah.
