We just finished up on a round of birthdays in our house.

Minions ruled the world last year, didn’t they?

But I also know that Star Wars is going to take over!

Step 1: Mix your cake mix as directed or us your favorite homemade cake recipe. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).

Line your cupcake tin with cupcakes holders and set aside.

Step 2: Spoon the cake batter into the cupcake liners (filling about ½ way each) and bake for about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool completely, and then frost.

Step 3: While the cupcakes are cooling prepare your storm troopers (marshmallows).

After testing these I found it was much easier to make the faces with the black food grade marker.

First add a line across the top, and then make two triangles for the eyes.

Add the mouth and breathing lines off to the side to complete your Storm Trooper.

Step 4: Generously frost each cupcake, for easy frosting I use this cupcake decorating set.

Carefully add your Storm Troopers in the center of the cupcake.

Step 5: Enjoy and rock the party!

    1. If I had a cool black food marker like that I’d let my son make those this weekend. I wonder if melted chocolate would be too difficult to decorate the marshmallow with or even make them melt. Thanks for sharing the cute idea.

    2. Hey there! I really enjoyed this post! I know my Hubby would totally want me to make these for him! 😀 And I wanted to let you know that we are featuring this post at our Weekend Wind Down Link Party tonight at 6pm EST! 😀 Hooray! *throwing confetti in the air* Thanks so much for linking up to the party! Have a great day!
