White chocolate isn’t my favorite sweet treat in the world, but when it’s used to build R2-D2, I’ll take it! This holiday-ready droid is on display at The Fairmont San Jose. Their pastry chef was inspired by the Star Wars Exposition happening at the Tech Museum by the hotel and made this 150 pound dessert from white chocolate fondant as a tribute. I hope they don’t melt him down for parts after the holiday season is over!
