As you geeks out there know, May the 4th is the official Star Wars Day. (May the 4th be with you… get it?!) Check out the post I did for on the best way to celebrate!

This May the 4th, show off your buns! Get your Alderaan on and craft this stylish and delicious Princess Leia Cinna-Bun Headpiece. This project will let you display your Star Wars pride, and then eat it afterwards.

All you need is:

  • Break and bake cinnamon rolls with icing
  • Wax paper
  • Plastic headband

Step 1: Bake cinnamon rolls as instructed by packaging, until golden brown. Set aside two rolls per headpiece and refrain from glazing.

Bake Buns

Step 2: Cut circles out of the wax paper with approximately the same circumference as the baked cinnamon rolls. You will need one wax paper circle per bun. Cut Wax Paper

Step 3: Carefully apply a thin coat of icing to one side of the circle, ensuring the back side of the wax paper stays clean. Glaze Wax Paper

Step 4: Stick the glazed wax paper to the underside of a cinnamon roll. This part of the roll will end up against your ear, and the wax paper will keep your pastry sanitary and your hair clean.Wax Paper Bun

Step 5: Insert the headband’s ends into the sides of two cinnamon rolls. The exposed pastry roll should be facing outward.Insert Headband

Step 6: Put it on! While these buns can be rocked anywhere, wouldn’t it be fun to have your dinner party guests wear their dessert while sporting this look? Tessa Braun Princess Leia

Step 7: Eat the pastries. Peel off the protective wax paper, reheat the pastries, glaze ‘em, and eat up.

  1. Hi Tess,

    This project is too adorable! How do you dream up these crazy creative ideas?! Do you keep a pad by your bed and wake up during the night inspired by your dreams?

    This one is honestly too much!

    • Made this for our Christmas in Panem’ party. I don’t have a dutch oven, so did the prep steps of searing and cnezrlimiag on the stove top. I then cooked it on low in the crock pot. This was delicious served over rice! My guests raved about the stew. I’ve added this to my recipe box to make just because it is phenomenal!
