1) Tint Fondant

Knead white fondant until soft. Split ball into three. Tint one ball red, one ball blue and one ball gray. Use small drops of icing color and knead until even and desired color is reached.

2) Cut and Mist Circles

Roll out fondant and cut 12 blue circles and 12 red circles. Use black Color Mist spray to create discoloration on circles.

3) Cut and Mist Symbols

Using inspiration from the Star Wars swirl decorations, cut out 12 Resistance symbols from red fondant and 12 First Order symbols from gray fondant. Mist the bottom of the Resistance symbols with black Color Mist. Stack Resistance symbols on blue fondant circles, and stack First Order symbols on red fondant circles from step 2. Use small amounts of water as adhesive.

4) Let Sit Overnight

Lay fondant cupcake toppers on a flat surface overnight to harden. This will make them sit on the cupcake icing better.

5) Bake Cupcakes

Bake 24 cupcakes in Star Wars baking cups according to recipe directions. Let cool.

6) Tint Icing

Separate icing into two batches. Tine one batch royal blue and the second batch red.

7) Ice Cupcakes

Add an open star decorating tip to the decorating bag, then fill the bag with icing. Ice cupcakes.

8) Position Fondant and Picks

Place fondant toppers on cupcakes, and use Star Wars party pics for extra decoration. Arrange cupcakes on Star Wars treat stand and your cupcake mission is complete!
