Whether you’re planning on catching up on all of the Star Wars movies or planning for an upcoming Star Wars themed birthday party, these Storm Trooper Star Wars Cupcakes are going to be a hit. And they’re super simple to create!
My kids haven’t even seen Star Wars but they have absolutely fallen into the Star Wars fever. My kids are so obsessed that we’ve been reading a number of Star Wars books, including the awesome Star Wars: Jedi Academy trilogy by Jeffrey Brown (affiliate). Don’t miss my entire list of Star Wars Books for Kids.
Storm Trooper Star Wars Cupcakes
We just finished up on a round of birthdays in our house. Minions ruled the world last year, didn’t they? But I also know that Star Wars is going to take over! This post contains affiliate links.
- Box cake mix or your favorite homemade cake recipe
- White Buttercream Frosting
- Black Wilton Frosting or a Food Grade Marker in Black
Step 1: Mix your cake mix as directed or us your favorite homemade cake recipe. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Line your cupcake tin with cupcakes holders and set aside.
Step 2: Spoon the cake batter into the cupcake liners (filling about ½ way each) and bake for about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool completely, and then frost.
Step 3: While the cupcakes are cooling prepare your storm troopers (marshmallows).
After testing these I found it was much easier to make the faces with the black food grade marker. First add a line across the top, and then make two triangles for the eyes. Add the mouth and breathing lines off to the side to complete your Storm Trooper.
Step 4: Generously frost each cupcake, for easy frosting I use this cupcake decorating set. Carefully add your Storm Troopers in the center of the cupcake.
Step 5: Enjoy and rock the party!
