  • Mix up your cake mix as directed or you can also use your favorite homemade cake recipe. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Line your cupcake tin with cupcakes holders and set aside.
  • Spoon the cake batter into the cupcake liners (fill about ½ way up) and bake for about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool completely, and then frost.
  • Generously frost each cupcake with a thin layer of white icing.
  • Using a thin writing tip (I used a #4) take your black icing, start one side of the hair first, from the center down. (You will want to create a middle part) Add the other side of the hair and then add the eyes.
  • To make the mouth use a small amount of your white frosting and add one drop of red food coloring to make pink. You can also use heart candies to make a cute simple mouth if you have any on hand.
  • For the hair buns, use a dab of icing to stick Oreos to the sides of the cupcake liner. To get rid of the ‘white line’ from the creamy center of the Oreo simply run a thin layer of black frosting down the center of each Oreo.
  • Enjoy!!!

  1. Hi Lisa, how lovely of you to join us at Thriving on Thursdays last week. My kids would go mad at these cupcakes. They love anything Star Wars. Just letting you know I’m featuring your post at tomorrow’s party. Thanks so much for joining in.

  2. These cupcakes are quite cute! Have you made cupcakes on other themes? Guardians of the Galaxy 2 just came out and there’s a new Blade Runner movie coming in the fall.
