For the Jawa cupcakes...
Dark chocolate cake mix
Milk chocolate Frosting
Crushed sugar cookies or graham crackers
Piping bag w/ star tip
The Jawa cupcakes were very easy! Just bake cupcakes according to the box or your preferred recipe. Let cool so your frosting doesn't melt. It's important to make sure the cake mix is darker than the frosting so there is contrast between them. Jawas have black faces so you could even use black icing or black fondant if you wanted. Pipe your frosting around the top edge of cupcake making sure to make a point for the top of the hood. Pipe two dots for eyes so your M&M's will stick. Add M&M's and sprinkle a tiny bit of sugar cookie to represent the sand, and you're done!
For the Stormtrooper cupcakes...
White cake mix
1 bag of regular marshmallows
Food markers (I got mine from Walmart)
For Phasma we used Wilton's Cool Mist silver food spray
Bake your cupcakes, let them cool, and frost them. I melted my frosting and dipped them so it had a smoother texture. At this point I had to leave and I had Mary decorate all the Stormtrooper heads. I had no idea she was going to do almost every variation she could find! I was really impressed. My favorites are Captain Phasma, FN2187, and the Imperial Incinerator Trooper, but you can just do a regular Stormtrooper helmet if you want to keep things simple. After you decorate your heads just place them on top of the cupcakes. I ended up drizzling more frosting on top. I kind of made mess, but I think they came out cute!
I hope everyone had a great NYE whether you stayed in or went out!
