The inspiration for this was a smaller and simpler version of the Clone Trooper cupcakes I created for my son's birthday party. These are not difficult to make, but could definitely be a little time consuming. But wouldn't these be awesome party treats for a SW themed birthday party?
Hope you enjoy them! And if you make them, I'd love to see pics!
