Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and fill a cupcake tin with liners.
Using a hand or stand mixer beat together
Unsalted Butter (1 1/3 cups)
Granulated Sugar (1 1/2 cups)
until light and fluffy.
Add in the
Large Eggs (3)
one at a time, continuing to beat.
Mix in the
Baking Soda (1/2 Tbsp)
Salt (1 tsp)
Vanilla Extract (1 Tbsp)
and mix for about 3 minutes, until fluffy and totally combined.
Using a spatula, add in half of the
All-Purpose Flour (2 1/3 cups)
and mix to combine. Then add the
Whole Milk (1 1/2 cups)
in batches, mix slightly after each pour. Mix until combined and then add in the rest of the flour. Mix just until combined, but do not overmix.
Evenly divide the cake batter between cupcake tins. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let the cupcakes cool in the pans for 5 minutes, and then turn them out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
Once cooled, use a knife to carve a circular, 1-inch deep piece out the top of the cupcake in the shape of a cone. This can be roughly 1 inch, a little more or less is perfectly fine as long as you don’t cut through to the bottom. Carefully slice off 3/4 of the cone, so that all that’s remaining is a small “cover” for the hole.
Fill the hole with
Sprinkles (1 cup)
or candies. Press the top of the cone back into the hold to cover and then chill in the fridge.
Vanilla Frosting (3 cups)
into 3 medium mixing bowls. To make the green frosting, combine 3 drops of
Green Food Coloring (as needed)
, 1 drop of
Black Food Coloring (as needed)
, and 1 drop of
Yellow Food Coloring (as needed)
. To make the brown frosting, combine 2 drops of
Brown Food Coloring (as needed)
and 1 drop of Black Food Coloring together.
To frost Yoda, cover half of the cupcake in brown frosting and the other half with green. Use a knife to smooth the top. Cut a whole
Large Marshmallows (6)
in half and then in half again. Using a toothpick, stick the cut marshmallow into the green side of the cupcake to form the ear, repeat with the other marshmallow. Gently frost over the ears with more green frosting until completely covered.
To frost Princess Leia, cover the whole cupcake with white frosting. Use a knife to smooth the top. Use brown frosting to frost her hair by swooshing her bangs onto the top of the cupcake. Place a
Rolo® Chocolate Candies (12)
on each side for her buns.
To frost Chewbacca, cover the whole cupcake with brown frosting. Use a fork to create a fur-like texture. To form his belt use pieces of
Black Licorice Candy (6)
White Sugar Pearl Sprinkles (24)
. Alternate the two until the belt stretches the full diagonal length of the cupcake.
Serve to the Jedi or Sith of your choosing…May the Force be with you.
