This May the 4th, show off your buns! Get your Alderaan on and craft this stylish and delicious Princess Leia Cinna-Bun Headpiece. This project will let you display your Star Wars pride, and then eat it afterwards.
All you need is:
- Break and bake cinnamon rolls with icing
- Wax paper
- Plastic headband
Step 1: Bake cinnamon rolls as instructed by packaging, until golden brown. Set aside two rolls per headpiece and refrain from glazing.
Step 2: Cut circles out of the wax paper with approximately the same circumference as the baked cinnamon rolls. You will need one wax paper circle per bun.
Step 3: Carefully apply a thin coat of icing to one side of the circle, ensuring the back side of the wax paper stays clean.
Step 4: Stick the glazed wax paper to the underside of a cinnamon roll. This part of the roll will end up against your ear, and the wax paper will keep your pastry sanitary and your hair clean.
Step 5: Insert the headband’s ends into the sides of two cinnamon rolls. The exposed pastry roll should be facing outward.
Step 6: Put it on! While these buns can be rocked anywhere, wouldn’t it be fun to have your dinner party guests wear their dessert while sporting this look?
Step 7: Eat the pastries. Peel off the protective wax paper, reheat the pastries, glaze ‘em, and eat up.
May the 4th be with you this Saturday! Leave us a comment and let us know how you plan to celebrate.
