I was recently asked to bake the birthday dessert for one of my favorite munchkins. He loves everything Star Wars and was having a Star Wars themed birthday party. I was a little (or a lot) nervous to take on this event because I had never made any characters before and most of my cupcakes are, well, girly. But I was up for this challenge!
I found silver cupcake liners that I felt would be appropriate. I really wanted to avoid using patterns or anything that would take away from the cupcakes themselves.
I frosted the cupcakes with basic buttercream frosting and placed a marshmallow in the center of each one.
I could not have been more excited with how they turned out! While despite meeting George Lucas, which was an absolute thrill, I never really got into Star Wars. I know… *gasp!* But I love the enthusiasm this little munchkin had when he saw his birthday cupcakes and asked me if they really belonged to him. Talk about tugging on those heart strings!
Do you have a Star Wars party coming up? I’d love to help theme your party out!
