This delicious spread of Star Wars food was recently featured at the UC Berkeley Astronomy Tea. Credit for the idea goes to Chelsea Harris who is a Berkeley Astrophysics graduate student, a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow, and a big Star Wars fan. She got the idea when it occurred to her that the Death Star looks an awful lot like a honeydew melon.

She then went to work making a honeydew melon Death Star with scone asteroids, some chocolate Han Solo in carbonite treats, and an unbelievable sculpted bread Jabba the Hutt. The finishing touch was playing music from soundtrack throughout the event.

See more pictures after the break…
