Star Wars Cupcakes

These are the best cupcakes in the galaxy right now 😉

Ya know, I am so excited about this post because we are big SW fans around here and I think these are pretty darn cool.

Plus, what I love the most is that they are not super hard to make.  Sometimes, I just want to make something fun and cute without a whole lot of work. That is what I was going for in this post.

I hope you enjoy them! Scroll down to see them all!

Need an easy Star Wars cupcake for an upcoming birthday party, Star Wars party or other fun event? Try these!!

Storm Trooper Cupcakes

Storm Trooper Cupcakes

Let’s start of with something super easy to make. These storm trooper cupcakes couldn’t be more simple.

Grab a marshmallow and a black food safe marker (see my favorite brand at the bottom of this post) and draw on the face. Super fast to pull together. Storm Trooper Cupcakes

Light Saber Cupcakes

Edible Light Saber Cupcakes

Another very easy to make Star Wars cupcake is this light saber one.

The light sabers are made from fondant. She has details on her site. Basically, if you can roll a snake (like you did when you were a kid with play dough) then you can make these!

You could also crisscross two light sabers for a light saber duel look. Light Saber Cupcakes

Princess Leia Cupcakes

Easy Princess Leia Cupcakes

Cute, right?! The Princess Leia cupcake is great to add to the mix. Simply decorated, you really can easily make these.

The cookies for her hair are a fun, and yummy, bonus! Princess Leia Cupcake

Chewbacca Cupcakes

Star Wars Chewbacca Cupcakes

I think Chewbacca may well be one of the most popular Star Wars characters. Who doesn’t love the big and furry guy? He is awesome.

Arts and Crackers has detailed directions on her site to show you exactly how these are made. Not hard!

Now you can make some Chewie cupcakes to celebrate your love of all things Wookiee. Chewbacca Cupcakes

Yoda Cupcakes

Yoda Cupcakes

Well, you can’t have a Star Wars cupcakes post without including Yoda. That just wouldn’t be right!

They do not give details as to how these are made, so I will take a shot at what I think they did. I believe they used cookie cutters (maybe like the ones I found below?) to make green Yoda cookies and then laid them over the top of cupcakes.

The green cupcake papers make these even neater, don’t they? Yoda Cupcakes

Rebel Alliance Cupcakes

Gallactic Empire and Rebel Alliance Emblems Cupcakes

If you have an older Star Wars fan who may enjoy a bit of the dark side, they will love these Rebel Alliance and Galactic Forces cupcakes.

The emblems are made of royal icing. She goes into detail as to how to do this and it is sort of like painting with frosting. I did not think it looked hard to do, though likely it would take a bit of practice. I’m keen to try it myself. Rebel Alliance Cupcakes

Darth Vader Cupcakes

Star Wars Dark Side Darth Vader Cupcakes

I mentioned the dark side above and we continue here with Darth Vader cupcakes.

I, personally, would have made dark chocolate cupcakes for the base of these but you can do whatever you like.

These also use royal icing and the same type of technique I mentioned above in the Rebel cupcakes. Darth Vader Cupcakes

R2-D2 Cupcakes

R2D2 Cupcake Made with Cookie

I really wanted to find a cute R2-D2 cupcake but had some trouble. They were either super complicated and way too much work or they were sort of meh, not so great.

I kept hunting and compromised on this one. They are made with DIY decorated R2-D2 cookies and it was the easiest and nicest looking cupcake I could find.

If you do not have a fine enough piping tip, remember you can snip the end of a plastic baggie and just use that instead – works great!  R2-D2 Cupcake

BB-8 Cupcakes

BB8 Cupcakes

These are probably the hardest of all of the cupcakes I have featured today, and yet, they are still totally doable.

I tend to think of working with fondant, the same as I do working with any type of clay.

I used to use polymer clay a lot for crafting so if you have ever done any of that, or even played with play dough, just keep in mind that it is essentially the same type of thing.

Give it a try. It honestly is easy once you get the hang of it and this BB-8 cupcake doesn’t have a whole lot of detail so it won’t take too, too long to make either. BB-8 Cupcakes

That is it. I certainly hope you can find the perfect Star Wars Cupcakes among the wonderful choices presented here. Which one is your favorite?


Oh my gosh! These Star Wars cupcakes are sooo neat!!
