I started my Cupcake costume with the cupcake wrapper. I took thin tubes of PVC pipe and made two circles, one a little bigger than the other, and attached them together with straight tubes of pipe. I spray painted a folding window shade silver and wrapped it around the PVC frame. I tied fishing line around the top circle and made suspenders to hold it up.

I made the frosting by sewing fabric in half and stuffed the tubes with more tulle to create the fluffy look. I made the candles out of cardboard and made the flames out of yellow plastic wrap around wire hangers. You can’t really see it in the picture, but I had tiny Xmas lights behind each flame so they lit up.

I spray painted my shoes and hot glued bows on them. I added a bow to a headband to finish off the look.
