California bakery version of the “Star Wars” hero

From frozen in fancy carbonite to bread?

That’s right, the legendary ‘Star Wars’ bastard Han Solo is in another sticky spot, this sticky spot even more so than the previous one.

One House Bakery in Benicia, California has created a gorgeous life-size replica of a frozen Han Solo made entirely from bread dough–reflecting the fate the hero, played by Harrison Ford, met at the end of the 1980 movie Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire. Strikes Back.”

“Pan Solo is wrapped in lovinite ☺️😉…we are giant geeks!” One House Bakery wrote in a Sunday Instagram post.

The bakery said the bread statue is an entry for a local scarecrow competition. Pan Solo was created by Hanalei Pervan, co-owner of one of the homes and chief baker, and her mother, Catherine Pervan, the bakery’s chocolatier and co-owner.

“We’re pretty fan girls when it comes to sci-fi, and obviously the Star Wars franchise is just an iconic icon,” Katherine told USA TODAY, adding that Han Solo frozen in carbonite is “a picture everyone knows, I don’t. I guess anyone would. He made it out of bread.”

The two started planning their creation three months ago. “Then the work took about a month after hours,” Hanalei said, noting that they worked several hours each night after the bakery closed to build the 6-foot-high structure.

Pervans explained that they started with plywood and a Harrison Ford mask to get the right body proportion. Then they built layers and layers of dough and baked it to shape the body and details of Pan Solo.
