Star Wars Cupcakes From A Galaxy (Not So) Far, Far Away

Sharing is caring!

Punch it! Solo: A Star Wars Story opens on Friday in theaters everywhere. I think even in theaters in a galaxy far far away, but don’t quote me on that. A fun way to celebrate your Star Wars fandom is to make these Star Wars cupcakes from a galaxy (or kitchen) not so far far away. Enjoy your Galaxy Cupcakes!

Guys, I’m pumped about Solo: A Star Wars movie. I know there were all kinds of “concerns” about this one, but I had a chance to see it early last week and came away super happy with this movie.

I had NO concerns about Donald Glover as Lando, however. Before or after the movie!

You can check out my post that answers the question Is Solo: A Star Wars Story kid-friendly? before you take the kids. TL:DR version: yep, it is totally kid-friendly if they have seen other Star Wars movies. And speaking of other Star Wars movies— if you’re looking for the perfect way to watch the Star Wars movies in order, that’s the link for you! Believe it or not, there multiple options for the best Star Wars movie marathon watching order- even Luke Skywalker himself has an opinion on it!

Star Wars Cupcakes

Making movie themed goodies is so much fun! While these Star Wars cupcakes aren’t great for sneaking into the theater (I’m not saying you can’t try, I’m just saying they probably won’t make it intact! ha!) they would be fun for a Star Wars birthday party or Star Wars-themed event.

These guys could totally man the Star Wars cupcakes station. I mean, put the blasters down and pass out the snacks, Troopers!

Who knows? Maybe someone can hand them out at one of the?runDisney Rival Run Weekend Star Wars races? These Star Wars cupcakes would make a perfect mile 10 snack. 😉

Who else needs a Star Wars cupcake station on the course? I thought so. Make that happen, Disney!

Here’s the recipe (and as always, May the Force Be With You!).
