Bakers and Cupcake Halloween Costumes

This bakers and cupcake Halloween costumes were inspired by the fact that we just found out we were expecting our second child. So I wanted to do something with a "bun in the oven" and make it into a whole family idea. That meant my daughter had to be a fully cooked bun (or cupcake!).

Our bakers Halloween costumes were just party store aprons and chef hats with wooden spoons as accessories. I found a picture online of an oven and drew a "muffin" inside. I used crayons and markers to color it and I put it inside a sheet protector and stapled it to the front of the apron.

My daughter's cupcake costume was a bit more intricate. I took a small, old lampshade, spray-painted it silver and turned it upside-down. I attached two strips of terry cloth (front to back) as over-the-shoulder straps. Then I cut three strips of pink felt fabric each 14 inches wide. The first strip measured 12 inches longer than the circumference of the lampshade, second would be 5 inches shorter than the first, and the third 10 inches shorter than the first. I folded each one over into a "roll," sewed it up on three sides and stuffed it with quilt batting. I hand-stitched the fourth side of each "roll".

I put the lampshade on my daughter, then the longest roll, middle roll (both of these under her arms), and the third roll just around her neck. I sewed a sparkly pom-pom onto a green elastic (like a cherry on top) for her hair.

That's it!

Coolest Homemade Cupcake Costume 29

Homemade Cupcake Costume

Starting from the bottom:

The shoes are just some plane black shoes I purchased years ago for a school girl costume. I am wearing dark tights underneath pink fishnet stockings.

The cup part of the homemade cupcake costume is a large lamp shade I found at a thrift store. I had to saw out the inside metal then tape over the sharp edges. I folded two pieces of tag board accordion style then sewed them onto the outside for the cupcake paper cup look. I attached batting to the top with super glue and a bit of sewing (to make sure it stayed) for the frosting look. I cut up an old pair of purple sweat pants and a pink tea towel for the sprinkles. I also sewed strips of the purple material to the lampshade as shoulder straps.

The pink shirt is a part of a child's princess costume I found at a thrift store. I had to wear a white shirt underneath as it only covered half my torso.

The hat is a small straw hat I found at a thrift store; on it I glued batting and bits of cut up material in the shapes of hearts and circles.
I received A LOT of comments on my costume. It was my first homemade one so I was really happy to hear the compliments.

This site was an inspiration for my homemade cupcake costume progress.

Coolest Homemade Cupcake Halloween Costume Idea 54

 Homemade Cupcake Halloween Costume Idea

Homemade Cupcake Halloween Costume Idea

This is my Homemade Cupcake Halloween Costume Idea. I waited until the last minute to make it, so it didn't turn out quite like I thought it would. At first I was a little embarrassed to wear it for the whole party, but I did wear it inside for a little while, then I put it back outside in the van.

A little while after that, I decided to put it back on and strut my little cupcake around! I can't say that I'll ever wear it again, but it was a big hit at my sister's party, everyone loved it!!

The bottom part is a poster board cut in half and folded to look like a cup cake cup. Then I sprayed it all over and put industrial strength foil im sure regular house foil would work as well! The top is pink material sewn into a tube shape much like you would do a scrunchy lol then stuffed with batting and hand sen together looked a lot like a doughnut around my waist when I tried it on to see if it fit. Then I twisted pink and purple netting all around that then hot glued the sprinkles (pom-poms) to the netting. I tied a ribbon from the back of the cup to the front like suspenders to keep it from falling
The head piece is a wig with a styro foam ball ( I wanted an over the top sized cherry!) painting my fav color...(not red lol)...PINK!!!! Then sprays it with the glue and COVERED it with GLITTER! The stem part is a couple of metallic(shiny again) green pipe cleaners twisted and bent together, I doubled or tripled the pipe cleaners to fit the size of the "cherry". I made a hole in the ball then super glued it in. I topped my cherry hair off with a big wired silver ribboned bow to match my silver Cup. I wore white with silver fleck fishnet stocking with pink small hilled shoes. I wore a purple tank top. It was a hit!
