Something simple.

I had to make Chewbacca cupcakes!


These are really quite simple to make, which worked out perfectly since I needed something I could whip out a ton of for our party goers. I decided I should probably share the tutorial with you and have even included a video for this one!

Here’s how to make these “Wookiee cute” Chewie cupcakes:

Chewbacca Cupcakes What You Need

What You Need

  • Cupcakes (I used chocolate–bake them in brown rappers if you have them), fully cooked and cooled
  • Cake frosting (you can make your own, buy it here, or buy from the store–I picked up some white frosting at our grocery store’s bakery; alternatives, thanks to my boys, listed in the directions list)
  • Gel food coloring (I used brown and a goldenrod color which can be made with a mix of brown and yellow–here is my favorite starter set or this one is great too)
  • Toothpicks
  • Frosting bags (Here are the ones I have; use as directed)
  • Frosting couplers
  • Frosting tips (two different sizes star tips–I believe I used #22 and #21, and one thin round tip–I believe I used #2)
  • Two small containers for mixing the frosting colors
  • Candy eyes
  • Chocolate chips
  • White cake decorating gel

Now for the simple step-by-step instructions!
