The Mandalorian, the hit Disney + series that first debuted in 2019, is set to return for its second season later this month. In honor of that occasion, Benicia, California’s One House Bakery baked up some extraordinary models of characters from the show.
Bakers from One House worked on the project for two weeks and 150 total hours before unveiling the life-sized bread sculptures this past weekend. The dough Hannalee Pervan, head baker and co-owner of One House Bakery, and Catherine Pervan, her mother and co-owner, used is called “dead dough,” a decorative dough made with flour and a solution of sugar and water.
Hannalee Pervan is an accomplished baker, having studied at Le Cordon Bleu and having worked on both the pastry and bread teams at Bouchon Bakery and the bread team at Thomas Keller’s flagship restaurant, The French Laundry.
Among the show’s characters represented in the sculptures are the titular Mandalorian and The Child (also known as Baby Yoda).
The “Paindoughlorian” armor is made completely out of bread and the “Baby Dough-da” is floating in mixing bowls and its clothing is made from bread as well. There is also a “Pandroid” that is made out of pans and other kitchen tools.
Star Wars fans can take pictures with the ‘Man-dough-lorian’ figures while they await the release of The Mandalorian Season 2 on Friday, October 30 on the Disney + platform.
