No one has to ask my kids twice if they want pancakes. Or cookies. Or cupcakes. Or pretty much anything sweet. Combine their passion for goodies with their obsession for Star Wars (my three boys range in age from 10 to 6, and “obsession” is putting it mildly), and just try and keep them out of the kitchen! I really wish I had discovered Williams-Sonoma’s line of Star Wars products before Christmas, but fortunately we have some birthdays right around the corner.
The cookie cutters are beyond cool, and you can choose from two sets at $19.95 each: Heroes & Villains, or Vehicles. Unfortunately, I’m not a very talented decorater, so the kids might have to settle for the general shape and a lot of imagination! Also available, and much more likely to be used regularly in our house, are the Star Wars pancake molds.
Let’s not forget the importance of our tools. It would hardly be seemly to flip our Star Wars pancakes with anything but a Darth Vader or Storm Trooper Flexible Spatula ($12.95 each).
And of course, our little intergalactic chefs must look the part while hard at work in the galley. The Star Wars Kids’ Apron is available with ($24.95) or without ($19.95) personalization and even comes in adult sizes so no one has to feel left out.
Also available from Williams-Sonoma are Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire Cupcake Decorating Kits ($12 each) and Vehicle Sandwich Cutters ($19.95). Enjoy them much you will.0
