Chewbacca cupcake

Looky, Wookiees, it’s Chewy cupcakes. OK, enough with the bad jokes. I made more than three dozen of these Chewbacca cupcakes for my Star Wars fan son to take to his kindergarten class — enough to span 12 parsecs. If you want to make these Chewbacca cupcakes more quickly, just skip the “furry” part and frost them in a smooth layer of chocolate. This is a variation of a Chewbacca cupcake I saw online.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; chocolate frosting; pastry bag and #233 metal tip; white or off-white frosting; pastry bag and small, round metal tip (#2 is good); 2 white M&Ms; 2 black M&Ms; black writing icing in a tube (or, use a black food-safe marker.)

How to Make It: Frost cupcake with a thin layer of chocolate frosting. Put chocolate icing in pastry bag affixed with #233 metal tip. Use tip to make long strands that overlap for a furry effect. Squeeze a dot of black writing icing onto white M&Ms for eyes and place on cupcake. Add black M&M nose. Use white icing and round tip to “draw” a mouth and/or teeth.
