After shopping around for cupcake costumes, I decided to construct my own Homemade Cupcake Costume since 1) I was on a budget, and 2) the few cupcake costumes I've seen were only in kids sizes. I searched online for many ideas on where and how to start putting the costume together but in the end, I decided to wing it: I bought the materials first, then figured out how to put them together.
For the "cake," I cut two trapezoid-shaped pieces made of poster board and used hot glue to wrap both pieces in brown cotton fabric. Using the same brown fabric, I fashioned two straps that would connect the two trapezoid shaped pieces and would allow them to be worn over my shoulders like overalls. Additionally, I glued straps on the sides so that I can adjust the cake to have a rounder appearance.
For the frosting "cup," I cut two cloud-shaped pieces (one bigger than the other) out of pink felt. I cut a hole in the center of each piece and layered them together. I hot glued snips of colored straws to act as sprinkles. Getting into the costume was easy: just tie the "cake" over my shoulders and adjust the straps at my waist, and then layer the frosting over my shoulders.
I've gotten many compliments on this costume and always have to explain how I made it! This has been my favorite costume so far! My boyfriend dressed up as a baker with an apron and a mittens. I decorated his apron with an applique that looked like my cupcake costume.
The baker costume was purchased from an online culinary store. Much cheaper than retail stores that I checked. The piping bag is made from cotton, stuffed with batting and the tip is metallic painted foam. The bag conceals a can of silly string. This was a great prank.
The frame for the cake bride was made from light-weight clear poly-tubing. The cake is pretty easy to sew given the straight sides and its flat top. I ended up sewing satin ribbon inside the skin for securing to the frame. This made it easy to adjust the skin where needed. The purple satin icing was stuffed with batting.
The silk flowers and large bow all made to come off for storage. The fascinator (headpiece) is stacked Styrofoam circles with hot glued flower buds, ribbon and a plastic party plate. I made the bird-cage veil and hot glued it to the plate.
Hope you enjoy it... This Baker and His Cake Couple Costume was a hit at the party.

My daughter had a camping birthday party just before Halloween this year. There was a trick-or-treat hour, so we decided to make her a cake and her friends were candles.
This Birthday Cake costume took about 7 hours to complete, has 6 hula hoops, cardboard, zipties, 581 pom-poms, glitter letters that were made with my cricut and her headband was also cut with my cricut and glittered. We also added large sponges to help her with supporting it on her shoulders! She said it was pretty comfy!
