Galactic Fudge Cupcakes

Who knew that Darth Maul likes to bake?! He especially likes to create Galactic Fudge Cupcakes that resemble the Dark Side and that reminds him of the galaxy he wishes he ruled.

I wanted to create a cupcake that fits this years Star Wars Halloween theme and I love how these Milky Way Galaxy inspired cupcakes turned out.

They are rich and covered by the Dark Side (ahem..also know as fudge icing) and adorned with a variety of planets, stars, and asteroids.

These are fun to make and are the perfect compliment to any galaxy inspired party you may be planning!

Who knows…maybe Maul should give up his quest to destroy Obi-Wan and turn his attention towards something a little more peaceful like baking sweet treats.
