We wanted our 7 month old daughter to be a cupcake for her first Halloween. But, since she’s so young and would be in a stroller for much of the occasion, I decided to turn her stroller into a giant cupcake as part of her Homemade Baby Cupcake Costume.
She is wearing a knitted cupcake hat, she has a bling-cupcake that I ironed onto her shirt and another on her pants (on the butt).
I made the base of the stroller cupcake from cardboard, covered with cellophane folded like pleats, tape and zip-ties. The frosting is white satin cloth rolled up with batting inside. The cherry is a Styrofoam ball covered with cellophane and a green pipe cleaner for the stem. Finally, large jewel brads make up the sprinkles.
