Super scary and cute miniature Sarlaccs jumping out of vanilla cupcakes. These Star Wars Sarlacc Cupcakes are perfect for your next creepy Halloween party!
There are many benefits to living in Dubai. First, all the crazy things you see on a weekly basis. That buzzfeed list, is not in any way an exaggeration. The food. Oh my goodness the food! Also the movie theaters are amazing here. They even have a luxury VIP section that is out of this world. Movies will never be the same for me when I go back home. Speaking of movies…The movie set of Star Wars the Force Awakens is basically an hour and half drive away. How cool is that? I know what our family is going to be doing next weekend. Driving the dunes of Abu Dhabi searching for droids, Jawas, and the Millennium Falcon.
It is definitely not a secret how geeky our family is and baking geeky desserts is one of my favorite things to make for the blog. One of my most popular posts was my Star Wars Sarlacc Bundt Cake. So since Halloween is just around the corner, I put together these Star Wars Sarlacc Cupcakes. They were incredibly easy to decorate and perfectly adorable for your next Halloween or Star Wars themed party.
Star Wars Tusken Raider Cookies made out of easy vanilla madeleine cookies and creamy peanut butter frosting. Cute chocolate chip eyes and a chocolate mouth make these guys a little more adorable and a lot less menacing.
By far, my favorite Star Wars characters are those viscous creatures known as the Tatooine Sand People. Some may call them creepy with their vacant eyes , weird ventilating mouth, and tubes protruding from their faces. Not to mention their crazy battle cry. You know, the one you heard when that jerk URoRRuR’R’R attacks Luke. That wasn’t a typo. That’s actually his name. Lucas, you wonderful strange man you.
Star Wars Wampa Cake made of rich red velvet cake, frosted with cream cheese frosting, and drenched in sweetened coconut. With fangs made of frosting and chocolate horns, he’s irresistible!
No worries Luke! This Wampa may be huge, but he doesn’t have any arms that need cutting off. Your’e safe. So go change your jedi underpants before anyone notices. Now Luke can have his revenge yet again. This time though, it’s the sweet kind.
Buttery caramel flavored moist bundt cake drizzled with homemade salted caramel sauce and dusted with Biscoff Cookie Crumbles. Two Biscoff madeleines with salted caramel buttercream teeth make the monster of this Star Wars Sarlacc Bundt Cake.
I have a little confession about my family. We’re a bunch of geeks. Geeks to the core. I’m a Disney fanatic sprinkled with a little Harry Potter and drizzled heavily with I Love Lucy. My husband is a Trekkie who’s obsessed with Star Wars all while being a loyal Battle Star Galactica fan. But geeks are awesome. So while October comes to a close, this Star Wars Sarlacc Bundt Cake is for you geeks!
So for all you non-geeks, a Sarlacc is a horrific plant-like omnivorous creature found across the galaxy. It’s got huge tentacles and a beak and was in the famous pit scene from Return of the Jedi. This is where Bobba Fett met his maker. This thing gave me the heebie jeebies the first time I saw Return of the Jedi, so this is my little tribute to him. I know the Sarlacc traditionally does not have teeth on his beak, but I just couldn’t resist. Teeth made of frosting is my new favorite thing.
Would this trigger PTSD for Luke? Maybe…But I could totally hear him say,
“But I don’t remember the Sarlacc ever having teeth…”
And all the Star Wars trolls nod and clap in agreement. Hey guys, just think of this Sarlacc as the suped up version with CGI teeth. I know, CGI is a sore subject. Either way, this guy is super delicious. You should make him now. Teeth or no teeth.
Pineapple Dole Whip cupcakes filled with fresh pineapple curd and frosted with tart pineapple frosting. A Disney inspired tropical treat.
Have you ever had the Dole Whip Pineapple soft-serve at Disneyland or Disney World? It’s in my top ten desserts that I eat while I’m at Walt Disney World. It’s one of a kind and it’s absolutely out of this world delicious. It has a cult following it’s so amazing. You can read all about it at Disney Food Blog. They show you exactly where on Disney property you can snag the cool, refreshing pineapple dessert. Check out all their other posts while you’re there. If you’re a Disney fanatic and visit regularly, you need to follow this blog. They document nearly every restaurant and every menu item served at Disney. It’s a blog I visit regularly every week!
