Princess Leia cupcakes
It’s the ‘do that makes the woman.
cream cheese frosting
Normally I’d go all out and go nuts with the fondant, but I wanted to take an easier route here and do it all in frosting for a change.
Take your cooled cupcake and spread a THIN smooth layer of frosting on top. I used cream cheese frosting (here) because it has a slight off white tint to it, which I liked for the complexion.
Using a frosting tinted black, I do one side of the hair first. (We are going for a middle part, here.)
Add the other side of the hair and then the eyes. Place a little heart quin for the lips.
Now for the hair – take an Oreo and stick it to the side of the cupcake liner, using the black frosting. Do the same for the other side. To get rid of the ‘white line’ i.e. creamy center, simply run a thin layer of black frosting down the center of the sandwich cookie.
I’m sure these would be served at a high tea for the Leader of the Rebel Alliance.
