Do you consider yourself the biggest Latino Star Wars nerd this side of the galaxy? Maybe you have a limited-edition lightsaber that you refuse to take out of the box or replica of Boba Fett’s helmet, but there’s one Star Wars item you likely don’t have in your sci-fi movie collection yet: Rosca de Reyes de Baby Yoda.

Kraneo Food, a restaurant in Mexico City, has created the dessert that is traditionally eaten during Día de los Reyes Magos, with a twist. Instead of a small figurine of Baby Jesus baked inside the ring-shaped sweet bread, Kraneo Foods has replaced him with Baby Yoda.

The tiny toy replica of the fan favorite character in The Mandalorian series is approximately 5 centimeters. Rosca de Reyes de Baby Yoda reportedly costs $500 pesos (about $25 U.S. dollars).

We’re not sure about how intellectual property works across the border, but Kraneo Food seems pretty confident in letting the popularity of the franchise work for them. Last summer, they were selling a “Yodita Box,” which is a limited-edition meal that comes with a burger, potato chips, Madalorian craft beer and a surprise gift.

No word yet on whether getting the slice of Rosca de Reyes with the Baby Yoda inside of it will bring you good luck, but we’re assuming it’s more along the lines of receiving Jedi powers. Rosca de Reyes de Baby Yoda is the way.
