Cute Star Wars Cupcakes - Cupcake Couture Blog Party "Back to School"


More fun from Carrie over at Bella Cupcake Couture! This time it's up to us - with a lot of help from some super creative kiddos - to come up with a design on plain cupcake wrappers for this Back to School Blog Party! And as with every Cupcake Couture Party, there is a neat giveaway prize pack, see the details below!


So here's what came in the mail:

How fun are these straws??
My kids love to draw and create, I mean LOVE.  And they are good at it, especially my newly turned 9 year old, Jack.  A way better artist then me.  So this was a simple request, draw something, and anything you like on the cupcake wrappers.  What did he pick? Duh, Star Wars of course.  It was a no brainer for him.  I've mentioned it a million times before but we have major Star Wars freaks living here.  He's also way into the Origami Yoda book series, and just got him for his birthday the new book, The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett and Art2-D2's Guide to Folding and Doodling, which gives all kinds of ideas for folding Star Wars characters and making cute doodle characters as well.


And of course light sabers were required.  These were just made from cutting the straws into thirds and adding a little black tape around the bottoms. Attach the festive sabers with some more tape.


Here is what Jack has to say about them:

"It was pretty easy to make the doodles all I had to do was trace a quarter! Also my most favorite Star Wars character  is Yoda! I like Yoda because he is the Jedi Grand Master and taught Luke Skywalker to be a Jedi. My All-Time favorite cupcake flavor lemon!!!!!!! I love to fold origami and paper airplanes.  Hope you like the cupcakes!"

Here are the characters drawn on Bella Cupcake Couture wrappers up close:

Can't go wrong with Luke, Leia, and Yoda
Love Obi-Wan's stubble!
Is it possible to make the Emperor look cute? Yes!
A trio of bad guys
And you get some really fun and easy Star Wars cupcakes!

  4. Wow!! So creative with making the paper straws light sabers. I almost put life savers because when I was a kid that's what I thought they were called. The cupcake wrappers look amazing.

  11. You guys did such a great job on your wrappers. They are so cute!!! Not sure what I would make since I'm about as artistic as a frog. So I'd probably do something funky and 70's ish with lots of fun colors.
