R2D2 Edible Cupcake Topper

R2D2 Edible Cupcake Topper

My older boys are 7 and 10. We are VERY protective on what shows our children watch. For this reason we are now just beginning to watch the Star Wars series. We started with episode IV, after great deliberation. We have gotten through the first two and my boys are as enthralled as I was when I first watch them at their age. In celebration of the new Star Wars movie we created some R2D2 edible cupcake toppers and are sharing the instructions with you. 

If you are looking for more cupcake recipes, why not try one of these?

Make sure to go to the chocolate cupcake and frosting recipe. We used the same recipe as the Minion cupcakes. Below you will learn how to make the R2D2 topper.

If you are not a fan of cupcakes – no problem. You can put these icing R2D2’s on a cake or any other dessert that you want.

R2D2 :

Locate a picture of R2D2  on Google.  Print the picture in color. Tape this picture with several small R2D2’s  of it on it to a cookie sheet.

Tape wax paper (covering the copies of  the R2D2) to the cookie sheet . Follow the color and features as printed on the paper.

Using a small pastry bag fill with the black royal icing and a #2 tip.  Start by outlining R2D2 first.   Allow this to dry for 30-60 seconds.

Draw a black line 1/3 rd down of R2D2 to divide it in thirds.  Fill in the bottom 2/3 rds with the white icing.  Allow to dry for 30-60 seconds then add three blue lines across R2D2 directly under the grey top third of R2D2.  Add two thicker white lines directly next to the three blue lines on R2D2’s body ending almost two thirds down on the body.  Directly under the three blue lines using the white icing make 2 heavy white dots on each side.

Under the middle of the three blue lines draw a cinder block shape with blue icing filling in the two center holes with white icing. Next draw a blue tall column, a blue egg shape and a blue circle.  Outline the shapes first then fill them in with the blue icing. Leave a small space between each of them. Between the blue column add a grey dot and between the blue egg shape and circle add a white dot.

Fill in the top third of R2D2 with grey icing allowing it to dry for 30-60 seconds.

 Make four small squares in the blue icing; three on the left side, one of the right side, and one on the  of R2D2.  Next add two blue rectangles in between the squares on the left and the right sides. Add a red dot on top of the  blue rectangle next to the three blue squares.  Next to the red dot add a grey dot. Add a blue rectangle above the first rectangle and add a small black dot on the rectangle on R2D2’s forehead.

At the very bottom of R2D2 outline and fill in a thick black line.  After 30-60 seconds of drying add seven grey squares on top of the black area.

Allow R2D2 to air dry for 5-10 hours.
Place R2D2 on the frosted cupcake in the center.
