Baby Jedi – Padawan cupcakes

My lovely friend Theresa was having a baby shower and I knew that I wanted to make her special baby cupcakes. Using the force and all my Star Wars baking prowess, I knew I had to make her something special, not just any babies – Jedi babies. That’s right, padawan cupcakes! Just the right cupcake for a geeky baby shower!

Little sleepy padawan, easy as can be and the ultimate treat for a Star Wars baby shower. Whether your baby grows up to be a Sith Lord or the leader of the Rebel Alliance these cupcakes will be enjoyed by all.

Baby Jedi – Padawan cupcakes

Ingredients:

lemon cupcakes
lemon frosting
Starburst candy
marshmallows
mini nilla wafers
black frosting
heart quins
mini lightsabers

Instructions:

Once the cupcakes are baked, cooled and frosted, set them aside and start on the younglings.

For the blankets use 2 Starburst of the same color and microwave them in a small bowl for 8-10 seconds.

Then using a rolling pin, roll them out flat into a squarish sized ‘blanket.’ Cut the edges if necessary or I also like to use clean crafting edge scissors.

Take the mini lightsabers and push them through the Starburst so that they stay put.

Using a #2 tip, pipe the black frosting on the Mini Nilla Wafer making eyes and maybe a little hair. A small dot of frosting will stick the tiny pink heart quin for the ‘lips.’

Now to start assembling! Cut a marshmallow in half and lay down one side for the ‘pillow’ and the other perpendicular – this will form the ‘body’ of the baby under the blanket.

Add a dab of frosting on the marshmallows and place the Nilla Wafer head on the pillow, then drape the Starburst blanket over the body area.
