"Luminous beings are we..." (Gingerbread post!)

"My ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes..."

 
Merry Christmas!

Well I didn't have a lot of time this year, but I did produce my yearly gingerbread "house" that I like to share here with my readers.  This year... Star Wars.  I wanted to do the Dagobah ship raising scene but an X-wing would have been a lot of gingerbread.  So, here we have Luke, R2 and Yoda decorating for "Life Day".


Yoda's hut was done by draping a sheet of dough over a hemisphere made of crumpled foil, and baking it.  Once the foil was removed, a hollow dome-shaped cookie remained.  Overall, not my best or most elaborate gingerbread creation, but still fun.
