2. Frost cupcake generously with white frosting.

3. Create Leia’s hair with black icing and a thin writing tip. Create a middle part. Add eyes.

Cupcake mix (I suggest chocolate)
White cake frosting
Gel food coloring (brown and golden brown coloring)
Frosting bags
Frosting tips
Candy eyes
Chocolate chips
White cake decorating gel


1. Cook and cool cupcakes as directed. Split the frosting into two sections to make your two different colors. Put dark brown in one and make the other a golden yellow and brown mixture. Stir frosting until they are well combined with the coloring.

2. Put frosting in piping bags. Use a larger star tip for the brown and a smaller star tip for the golden brown.

3. Add a layer of the brown frosting to the top of the cupcake. Fill in the cupcake with long, fur like strokes until the cupcake is completely covered.

4. Go in with the golden brown frosting and do the same as the brown frosting but leave a little brown frosting showing.

5. Add brown around the face for some dark features. Add the candy eyes and an upside down chocolate chip for a nose.

6. Add an oval shaped mouth in white frosting and then make “teeth” like shapes with a toothpick.

7. Make any final touches. Serve and Enjoy!

Bugles Original (chips)
Green melting chocolate chips
White Cake Mix
White cake frosting
Green food coloring
Yellow Food coloring
Small candy eyes
Green decorating gel


1. Bake the cupcakes in green liners and let cool completely.

2. Melt the green chocolate according to the directions on package. Dip Bugles into chocolate, covering the outside completely. Place on wax paper and let cool and harden.

3. Reserve a small amount of white frosting for the eyes and then color the rest of the frosting green with a little yellow to get a Yoda color.

4. Add a layer of green frosting to the tops of the cupcakes. It should look wrinkly like Yoda. (use a picture for reference)

5. Use the white frosting and make eyes. It should like a white football. Place the eye candies in the center of the “whites” of the eyes. You can add green gel around the pupil of the candy to give Yoda his green eyes.

6. Apply green frosting to the Bugles and add to the cupcake.

7. Enjoy!
