These Princess Leia cupcakes are super easy star wars cupcakes! Decorating the cupcake is easy so you can make a few, or a lot, in a short amount of time.

To make these cupcakes look like Princess Leia, start by frosting all of your dedicated Leia cupcakes with the white frosting.

We made half Chewbacca and half Princess Leia. So half of our cupcakes were dedicated Leia cupcakes.

Smooth the icing to create a smooth surface, as the base with be Princess Leia’s face. 

Now, place your open star tip in a decorator bag and fill with chocolate icing. Pipe the icing like shown below to create Princess Leia’s hairline.

How to Make Chewbacca Cupcakes

Ok, in my opinion, these Chewbacca cupcakes aren’t quite as easy as the princess Leia ones.

They are however super adorable, and won’t take you that much longer!

To make your delightfull Wookie cupcakes, start by taking the other half of your cupcakes. 

Using the same decorator bag filled with chocolate icing (and the star tip) Ice the cupcakes with the frosting, creating tiny stars all over the surface, like shown below.

Once the frosting dries slightly, gently press down and pointed peaks.

Now press a set of the candy eyes into the face of each of your chocolate frosted cupcakes.

Can you start to see Chewbaccas face forming? 

Now it’s time to play with a bit of fondant!

If you’ve never used fondant before, don’t let it scare you! You can buy it premade in a large variety of colors, and it’s really easy to work with. 

It’s like using a stiff playdoh to decorate your cupcakes, but tastier….

Roll out your black fondant and cut into 2-inch strips, that are a 3/4 inch wide.
