Carytown Cupcakes Loves Star Wars

But we all do, right?

Posted By on Fri, Dec 11, 2015 at 2:38 PM

It’s hard not to succumb to cupcakes, but Carytown Cupcakes, at 3111 W. Cary St., is making it even more difficult to resist them.

After transforming into Hogwarts with a selection of Harry Potter-themed cupcakes for Halloween, the bakery is now channeling an enormous amount of the Force to celebrate the latest Star Wars epic, "The Force Awakens" from Dec. 17-31.

First, the cupcakes: The Wookie Cookie (a vegan brown sugar cupcake with cookie dough filling), Darth Vader (a black velvet cupcake with black-tinted chocolate buttercream), Stormtrooper Sandie (a cream cheese pecan cupcake), Imperial Stout (a chocolate stout beer cupcake topped with meringue icing), Thai Coffee Fighter (a cardamom-spiced coffee cupcake) and the Princess Leia. The last one is a gluten-free cinnamon cupcake brushed with cinnamon glaze. They love everybody at that shop. Pick, choose, eat all six. How often does a Stars Wars movie come around, after all?

And to get in the mood for the big premier, Carytown Cupcakes will be decked out with decorations and will welcome visiting characters. R2D2 will be there, of course, but personally, I’ll have to pay a special visit to my old friend Han Solo -- frozen in carbonite.

Besides trivia and board game nights, the bakery will be host to the Richmond Cello Orchestra, which will perform the series’ memorable score Dec. 20 and 27 from 1:30-4:30 p.m.
