I can never turn down a kid with a love of Star Wars, so I came up with these Cupcakes for his birthday...
They were super difficult to do, in that he is ummmmm, all black. So at the very least it was a challenge of sorts to figure out how to make an accurate representation of him, in other shades besides black.
It's a standard yellow cupcake with dark chocolate frosting, dusted in black sanding sugar....think deep dark space, stars, warp speed, battles between good and evil :)
On the top of each cupcake is a sugar topper that I made using royal icing. I think overall they came out pretty good, given more time I believe I could have made them even better...but I'm sure I'll get another shot at them, being that my own nephew is a HUGE fan as well!
So who is YOUR favorite character...please feel free to share!! And may the force be with you on this hot summer Sunday!!!
