Angry Birds Star Wars Cupcakes

Hi everyone!
My little guys turned six last month and we celebrated with an EPIC Angry Birds Star Wars birthday party!
Before we share all of the details I just have to show you these cupcakes!

A few weeks before the party I had a ton of fun creating these fondant Angry Bird Star Wars cupcake toppers.  Working with fondant is a lot like working with play dough and after some experimentation and practice these turned out pretty cute!  You can do this too!  Just pick up some fondant and start playing!  I actually took step by step photos of each fondant character and would be happy to post them if there was any interest.
Update: find the step by step tutorial here.

We had C3PO, R2D2, Yoda, Han Solo, Darth Vader and Chewbacca.

Since fondant isn’t considered the most delicious topping, I wanted to make sure that the actual cupcakes were to die for.  I used a triple chocolate cake mix {prepared}, cookie dough and muffin cups.

I simply filled the muffin cups half way full with cake batter then dropped 1 Tbsp of cookie dough into the center of each cupcake.

After baking as usual we had the most amazing, moist, chocolate chip cookie cupcakes.  I topped each with a bit of chocolate icing before placing our cupcake toppers on top.  Here’s a close up of each character…

    When you made the Star Wars angry birds fondant designs, how far in advance did you do them? I’ve never worked with fondant but am thinking about trying it and wondered how many days before the party I can begin working on them, or do I have to do it the night before? Awesome designs!

      Hi Jeni! I made them 2-3 weeks before the party and kept them in an air tight container in a kitchen cupboard. That’s one of the nice things about fondant cupcake toppers ~ you can do this part of the party prep weeks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am hoping to do this with marshmallow fondant due to food allergies. I believe regular fondant has a nut base?? I would love to see the step by step photos or at least hear how you dyed the fondant (brands, color combinations to get the brown shade) and other supplies I may need to purchase.
