Feast Your Eyes on These Gorg Cupcakes

The cute Star Wars Resistance critters are now a delicious dessert treat thanks to this easy recipe.

Star Wars Resistance has just begun and we’re learning more about what life is like on the planet Castilon in the Outer Rim. Between the Resistance and the First Order, the Aces defend the Colossus while still managing to have a little fun.

Eating and is a big part of downtime on the platform and gorgs are a specialty. Cute but also delicious, they’re best when swallowed whole (see Jar Jar’s attempt in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace) — still, it’s hard to devour such a sweet little face. Luckily, these cupcake versions are much less slimy and lot less vicious.

Step 1: Roll out the white fondant and use a 3½-inch cutter to cut out circles. Place over the frosted cupcakes, and smooth out the edges.

Step 2: Roll out the lavender fondant and use a 3½-inch cutter to cut out circles. Cut out the lower third, creating a wave like pattern. Use icing to secure, placing over the top part of the white fondant.

Step 3: Use the back of a knife to poke two holes for the nose. Pinch the white fondant along the edge of the lavender fondant to create a lip edge.
