Star Wars Cupcakes

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, these cupcakes were the hit of the party! I made these for our friend Ethan for his Star Wars birthday party. When his mom mentioned the theme, I remembered seeing these killer cookie cutters at Williams Sonoma. So I ran out to get them. I tinted and rolled out fondant, then used the cookie cutters to make Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, Yoda and Boba Fett cupcake toppers. Then I created my own fondant designs for Luke Skywalker, Princess Leah, R2D2 and C3PO. I painted all the details on the fondant faces with food writer markers and luster dust. Lastly, I made Chewbacca by piping chocolate fur and adding frosting eyes plus a fondant nose and teeth. For the adults, I did a simple swirl of white frosting and topped them with fondant stars and edible star confetti. How did they turn out so cute? I think the force was with me. ;)
