Ever since porgs made their appearance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I have wanted to make some adorable food art featuring them. So I whipped up the sweetest cupcake cones featuring the furry little guys.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now available on Digital and Movies Anywhere, and catch it on 4K and Blu-ray starting 3/27.
For more Disney fun, try making Chewie Chews and Blue Milk:
Porg Cupcake Cones
- 4 Cups cake
- 6-8 Tbsps vanilla frosting
- 10 Oz. white chocolate candy melts
- Piping bag
- Black and orange food coloring
- 6 waffle cones
Break the cake into chunks and blitz in a food processor until finely crumbed.
Mix in frosting until a light dough-like texture is formed. Then form into balls, making sure the balls are able to fit over the top of the waffle cones. Refrigerate the cake truffle balls until firm (about 1-2 hours).
Melt white chocolate candy melts in a microwave. Using a piping bag, drizzle the chocolate over the edges of the cones to create the effect of melting ice cream. Set aside for the chocolate to harden.
Dip the cake truffle balls into the melted white chocolate, until they are fully covered. Let the chocolate set at room temperature (about 10 minutes).
Tint the white candy melts using black food coloring to create the grey color. Using a small teaspoon, drizzle the grey chocolate over half the cake ball. Let the chocolate set at room temperature (about 10 minutes).
Pipe the porgs’ wings using grey chocolate onto parchment paper and allow to set (about 10 minutes at room temperature).
Tint some chocolate orange and pipe the eye circles for the porgs directly onto the cake balls using a piping bag.
Using black tinted chocolate, pipe the porgs’ eyes and facial details, also directly onto the cake balls.
Place the cake balls on top of the cones and seal the edges with melted white chocolate. Adhere the wings using melted grey chocolate and hold in place for a minute or so, until the chocolate is set.
