Tomorrow is my son's 7th birthday. Wow! That went fast! And with each birthday comes the annual tradition of snacks for the classroom. This year, he begged me to make cupcakes. Alright. Not too hard. For cake, I forgo my no refined flour/sugar policy. The boxed mixes are just so much easier than making 30 cupcakes from scratch!
But wait...those cupcakes have to be decorated. And what are the 1st grade boys at our school really in to right now? Yup. Star Wars. Is that just here? Or is Star Wars huge with 7 year old boys everywhere? Anyway, Star Wars cupcakes it is.
Now, if you haven't read my first post, let me explain that I love to craft and cook and bake, but I don't always have great ideas. The internet, however, is full of them! So, I googled star wars cupcakes and found a couple that I was able to use for my inspiration.
I decided to do two different flavors - white with white frosting for the Yoda cupcakes, and chocolate with chocolate frosting for Vader (the dark side...). Then I had to make the faces. I used fondant, which I bought at the store, and tinted green and black.
Hopefully all the kids in the class will appreciate the love and effort that went into making these cupcakes. Ha. Who am I kidding. At least my son will be happy!
