I’m a nerd. Here’s the proof:
Yep. I love Star Wars. I own a R2D2 lunch bag and have a small collection of Star Wars related items, mostly Yoda inspired. He’s my favorite.
Yeah, yeah, he’s everyone’s favorite.
The idea for Star Wars cupcakes has been rattling around in my head for quite some time, but I’ve never had a reason to make them.
I finally decided no reason is the best reason.
White cake with whipped frosting (because being a Jedi means light, fluffy goodness) dyed green and topped with a Yoda sugar cookie.
Chocolate cake with a thick chocolate buttercream (because the Dark Side is heavy, rich grumpiness) topped with a Darth Vader sugar cookie.
I swirled a very small amount of food coloring into the batter before baking. I love the effect it gave. Red for Darth Vader and green for Yoda. For the color of their lightsabers, of course.
