Ingredients

Cake

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • Red food coloring

Frosting

  • 8 oz butter softened
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Salt if desired

Lightsabers

  • 24 small pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup blue candy coating melted according to package directions

Instructions

Cake

  • Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a bowl and stir well to combine. Set aside. Using a mixer, in a separate bowl mix butter until light and creamy. Add sugar and beat until well combined. Add in eggs and sour cream, mix until combined. Add in red food coloring until desired consistency is reached. Combine dry and wet ingredients, and add in buttermilk, stir until combined. Scoop batter into muffin pans that have been lined with 24 muffin liners. Fill muffin liners about 2/3 of the way full. Bake for approximately 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely prior to frosting.

Frosting

  • Beat together butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add in powdered sugar, a little at a time, and beat until light and creamy. Add in vanilla and beat until mixed. Frost cupcakes once the cupcakes are completely cooled.

Lightsabers

  • Prepare blue candy coating according to package directions. Dip small pretzels into candy coating, leaving one end of each pretzel uncovered. Place on parchment paper and allow coating to set. Place on top of frosted cupcakes.
