Anyone with kids knows how expensive birthday parties can get. Even if you have the party at home the costs add up- decorations, games, goodies for the kids, food and drinks.
To cut down on some of the cost I decided this year to make instead of buy the birthday cake. Fortunately my kid was not hung up on having an actual cake. So I went with cupcakes!
The only requirement I had was it had to be Star Wars themed and have BB8.
The party store I went to had Star Wars cupcake liners for less then $5 and they also had picks with BB8 and Kylo Ren for $5.
For another $5 I had the cake mix and frosting.
After baking the cupcakes and cooling them i was ready to frost them.
The first layer of frosting was white but the second layer I wanted to add on some color. I had some copper colored food coloring so I added it to the frosting to make it the BB8 orange.
After mixing the food coloring and using a decorating bag with a star tip here is the final product.
Even though it’s not perfect my kid loves it and that’s all that counts!😁
