I have to admit, when my son asked for a Star Wars birthday party I was pretty excited. After all, I grew up with the original Star Wars trilogy. Whether you’re planning your own Star Wars party, or you’re just looking for the perfect dessert to have while watching the movies with your kids, these Star Wars Storm Trooper cupcakes are sure to bring smiles.

How to Make Storm Trooper Cupcakes
Bake cupcakes as directed on package. Once cupcakes are completely cooled, frost them with white icing.
Using your black edible marker, draw simple Storm Trooper faces on your marshmallows. My kids have only seen the original Star Wars movies so far, so we went with the classic Storm Trooper look: black band around the top of the head, triangular eyes, upside down curve mouth and a few lines for vents or dots to be bolts at the bottom of the helmet. For a more modern Storm Trooper look you can connect the black band to the eyes like these cupcakes over at Spaceships and Laser Beams.
Once you have your Storm Trooper marshmallows are finished, simply place one on top of each cupcake. You will have your own delicious army of Storm Troopers in no time!
These cupcakes were a huge hit at my son’s Star Wars birthday party this year. Honestly, they are so simple to make, you could easily whip up a few Star Wars Storm Trooper cupcakes for your own Star Wars fan any day of the year.
