Sasha's Kitchen: Star Wars Themed Cupcake Series

It was nice for a new cupcake series. I'm not really a big Star Wars or Science Fiction fan, but I have certainly seen the classic movies, and thought they would translate well into a good series of cupcakes, made using fondant from New York Cake. Rather than buy a bunch of different colors of fondant, I bought plain white fondant, and used gel food coloring to make different colors of fondant. I didn't do all the characters, but I did the important ones and/or the ones I thought I could pull off: Princess Leia, Yoda, Jabba the Hut, Strormtrooper, Darth Vader, C3PO and R2D2. The cupcakes are just plain vanilla cupcakes that I made using the recipe from Julie Hasson's 125 Best Cupcakes. I frosted them with yellow/gold icing and added the fondant creations atop. Here are some pictures below:



  1. I love Star Wars and these cupcakes are adorable! They would be so fun for a Star Wars-themed movie night!

  2. Oh my these are so cute Sasha! Nice job.

  3. This are really great! I haven't seen Star Wars in over 20 years but I remember (and adore) each of these characters. Nice work.

  4. Those are great. Perfect for a marathon of the movies with friends.
