Star Wars Day: Chewbacca Cupcakes

Happy Star Wars Day! To celebrate this year I decided to make some Chewie cupcakes. They're not too difficult to decorate. You just need to have a couple of frosting tips and piping bags... and some muscles because creating furry Wookiee cupcakes is hard on the hands and arms.

I decided to pull out the new Star Wars cupcake liners that I picked up recently and made a batch of chocolate cupcakes.

Then came the fun part - decorating! I used the Wilton grass tip - No. 233 for the chocolate fur. This was the most time consuming part. After that, making the bandolier was fairly straight forward. Just be careful with black food colouring! It gets everywhere and leaves stains.

I had to throw in my Itty Bitty Chewbacca because he's too adorable and fits in perfectly with these yummy cupcakes!

How are you celebrating Star Wars Day today?

  1. These are amazing! Good on you taking the time to decorate them so well. I'm afraid I'm far too lazy to try.

  2. Oooooh, I love these, Jen! They are absolute perfection :)
