People are cutting the heads off angel cookie cutters to make Baby Yoda instead
On November 12, 2019, the world was introduced to Disney+'s incredible Star Wars spin-off series, The Mandalorian - and with it, The Child (AKA Baby Yoda).
The web series is set five years after the events of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and follows a Mandalorian bounty hunter (the same fictional people as Boba Fett), in their journey in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.
But to break up the seriousness of the show, Disney created a ridiculously cute sidekick for The Mandalorian, along with a strong reminder that they know exactly how to get your money through merchandise sales.
Check out this behind-the-scenes clip of Baby Yoda, shared by show Jon Favreau:
Unsurprisingly, the 50-year-old toddler was a hit with audiences, and now the internet is awash with Baby Yoda memes and art projects. And now you can bring Baby Yoda into the kitchen, with this incredible baking hack (although, some cookie angels will suffer in the process).
Taking to Instagram, a woman named Katy shared this genius hack on how to transform your classic angel cookies into trendy Baby Yoda shapes with just one simple step. In her caption, she writes: "When you chop off the head of an Angel cookie-cutter it sorta looks like Baby Yoda!"
And the results are utterly adorable - and a huge hit with people in the comments section:
And Katy's incredible cookie hack spread, and now other people are choosing Baby Yoda treats over the traditional angels:
(Isn't it strange that once you know it's a headless angel, that's literally all you can see.)
And just in case you were interested in what frosting Katy used (it was a popular question), she said: "I used an adapted version of @chelsweets royal icing recipe from her marbled sugar cookies! I also gave it a buttercream base (also Chelsweets!) for added flavor."
