I always think long and hard about what I'm going to be for Halloween. I try to out do myself every year and last year I think I did with my cupcake costume. I made the whole costume the day of the big celebration. A run to Jo Ann Fabric, Hobby Lobby, and Wal Mart and I had all of the items necessary to start my yummy costume. I used a laundry hamper and lined it as the cupcake tin, and put cotton fluff on top for the icing. I bedazzled Styrofoam balls and used those as the cherries on top! Of course every cupcake is made my its' pastry chef so I got my wonderful boyfriend to go along with my idea. We bought him a chefs hat, a white lab coat, and made a frosting bag.

We got soooo many compliments on our costume that night, and no one believed that it only took us about an hour and a half to put them together. This was the best Halloween costume by far and I'm finding it hard to come up with a better idea this year. Hope you enjoy to Make Your Own Cupcake Costume!

My boyfriend and I love tasty sweets! He asked me to be his girlfriend using edible letters on cupcakes, so this Homemade Cupcake and Baker Costume was a MUST.

For the base (the cupcake liner), I safety-pinned an old cylinder laundry hamper until it was about a foot tall. I folded 3 poster boards accordion style, painted them metallic brown, and sewed them onto the hamper's rim. Sewing the poster board was the only way I could keep the liner flexible, while keeping its accordion shape in tact. For the frosting, I sewed 3 yards of glittery pink tulle into a long tube, and filled it with polyester. Colored cotton balls made the perfect rainbow sprinkles, and I used tacky glue to attach them. I tied pink ribbon to harness the costume over my shoulders like suspenders.

For the baker, my boyfriend used one of his grandma's cooking aprons, and picked up a chef hat and mustache at a Halloween store.

ENJOY!!

I was trying to think of a costume this year that would be easy and creative. I looked at a few other costumes on this site and modified those ideas with the materials I was able to find at the store. I used a collapsible laundry hamper, tinfoil, Bristol board, quilt batting, and glitter foam for the cupcake and a head band with a Styrofoam ball (painted red) for the cherry on top. I added a pipe cleaner to the ball to make it look more cherry like.

This Homemade Cupcake Costume was a lot of fun to wear, and I got lots of compliments.
