Coolest Homemade Cupcake Adult Costume

This Homemade Cupcake Adult Costume took me a little over a week to make. I sewed it both with machine and by hand.

I bought some thick silver material, that looked like foil, and sewed the folds to resemble cupcake foil. Then I wrapped the fabric around a quilting hoop. I sewed old light pink shoelaces to the quilting hoop, so it could be suspended from my shoulders. The top of the cupcake is basically a pillow. I used light pink satin fabric, cut in the shape of a cupcake. I stuffed it and hand sewed on accent fabric to create the swirls. It was shimmery and I think it finished the look.

For the sprinkles, I used these things called magic doodles from JoAnn fabrics. They are mainly cornstarch, so they melt if they get wet. I liked the color of them and used them because I couldn’t find pastel colored pom-poms. I attached the top of the costume to myself by sewing elastic to the back of the pillow. This way I was able to lift it over my head and it would stay around my middle. I put on the bottom first, then I put the cupcake over the shoelaces holding up the bottom. My back was open so I wore a white tube top and covered it with leftover pink fabric from the swirls on the cupcake.

I wore light gray tights and silver heels. I ordered a light pink wig but it, unfortunately, did not arrive in time. I improvised by putting some cornstarch sprinkles from my costume in my hair with bobby pins. I also made a matching cupcake purse with leftover fabric. Nothing was difficult to make but it was just time-consuming with all the little details. All the compliments were worth the time and effort I put in.

  1. How did you make the top of the cupcake? Like is it one pillow just on the front of you, or does it go all the way around? Could you possibly tell me the details of how it’s made? Thanks!!!

  2. Hey! great job!
    I’m having trouble finding the right material for the cup, could you tell me where you found that thick silver material you used?
