Lightsaber cupcakes

Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Icing
complete with fondant lightsabers and stars to accompany the Star Wars Cake


  1. these are great! can you tell me if you wrapped the fondant around something like a lollipop stick? or just rolled solid fondant?

    Thanks for the inspiration!


    1. Hi Angela.
      I used an extruder (which can be found in the clay tools section at a craft store, I think mine is from Lee Valley or you can get fondant extruder but they much more expensive)It's just like a playdough toy that pushes the fondant out into nice neat tubes. I cut them to length and let glued the saber to the handle then let them dry. I finished them off by painting the handles with silver lustre.
