Cad Bane Cupcakes

The legendary bounty hunter takes on a new job -- dessert!

Cad Bane is the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy. During the Clone Wars, there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for credits, and his distinct voice and wide brimmed hat made his very presence a threat. To sweeten up this ruthless galactic gunslinger, you’ll need Durosian-colored skin made of blue frosting and licorice breathing tubes. Eat this cupcake quickly, as he can engage his rocket boots at any moment and it’ll be too late for dessert.
