Parents have a new weapon in their arsenal to get recalcitrant children to eat their breakfast.

To celebrate Pancake Day, the Star Wars Facebook page shared an amazing video of pancakes featuring the characters from a galaxy far, far away. And the pancakes aren’t just vague shapes. They have proper details like the vents on Darth Vader’s mask and a stormtrooper’s helmet, and like Boba Fett’s helmet-mounted sensor antenna. It’s almost a shame that someone would rip these apart with knife and fork and proceed to devour them.

With a careful watch of the video and a few colors of pancake batter, we think you could probably replicate these results after a few tries. Impress your friends and family. But, prepared for them to ask you to do this on a regular basis. These pancakes are too cool.
