Move Over National Portrait Gallery, One House Bakery in California Has Baby Doughda

A long time ago (early October) in a galaxy far far away (the City of Benicia in CA), One House Bakery unveiled the “Pain Doughlorian,” a series of life-size replicas of the characters from Disney+’s hit TV show The Mandalorian — but with a culinary twist.

Entered as part of Benicia’s Annual Downtown Scarecrow Display, the incredible edible scarecrows include “the Pain-dough-lorian” (The Mandalorian), “Baby Dough-da” (Baby Yoda) and “The Pandroid” (Bounty Android, IG-11).

Since it’s unveiling, the “Pain Doughlorian” has already received over 70k upvotes on Reddit, noticed by The Mandalorian actress Gina Carano on Twitter, and LIVE with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest covered it during their “Inbox” segment on national TV.

How it’s Made

The Pain Doughlorian armor is made completely out of bread, or “pain” which is the French word for bread. The Baby Dough-da is floating in mixing bowls and all his clothing is also made from bread. The Pandroid is made out of pans and other kitchen tools found in One House Bakery.

Head baker and co-owner of One House Bakery, Hannalee Pervan, who studied at Le Cordon Bleu and worked as part of the bread-making team at The French Laundry in Yountville, CA, worked on this project for two weeks with her mother and co-owner, Catherine, before the unveiling on October 12.
