Star Wars fans awaiting the Dec. 18 release of The Force Awakens can satisfy cravings for a galaxy far, far away by visiting DTLA hotspot Faith & Flower.
In early October, chef Josh Graves was at a Target when he spotted a Hot Wheels Millennium Falcon toy. It inspired him to make a mold for a white chocolate version. From there, he went on to make the Death Star, Darth Vader’s helmet and little lightsabers of absinthe candy.
The items are an unlisted part of Faith & Flower’s mignardises board, which includes honeycomb candy and chocolate truffles. Says Graves: “I told servers if someone seems like a fan of Star Wars, we’ll send it out to them.”
Grave tells THR he’s a big fan of the original trilogy and can’t wait to see the new films. But until Disney and Lucasfilm’s film, directed by J.J. Abrams, hits theaters in December, Los Angeles diners can hope to catch a Death Star sighting at Faith & Flower.
