DIY Cute and Easy Cupcake Costume for Halloween and Fancy Dress

This cute DIY cupcake / muffin costume is very easy to make and requires easily available items from around your house or the local store. It is super low budget and it involves very little time to make this Fancy Dress / Halloween costume. Perfect for toddlers and grown ups for fancy dress competitions, theme parties and of course, Halloween!

Mishika dressed up as a Cute Cupcake

So, I made this cupcake costume for Mishika for a Fancy Dress event for kids in our housing complex. She is almost 4 years old and this was her first every costume wearing event. I wanted her to enjoy participating instead of focussing on winning. So I didn’t tell her that there will be prizes involved and all. Getting kids involved in creating something that they will wear, eat or use is always a good idea. She wore the cupcake costume without any hesitation and didn’t ask us to remove it until the fancy dress competition was over and prizes were distributed!

Creating this cute Muffin required very basic items: Cardboard, Wrapping Paper, Glue, Scissors, an old Tutu / Dress with Frills that the kid has outgrown, Lanyard/String/Ribbon to hang the cupcake base bit.

I have uploaded a DIY video on YouTube on how to make this comfortable cupcake costume for Fancy Dress, Halloween, etc. Do check it out! Feel free to share with friends who might find this useful 😊 Save it for future reference as well. It is so super easy to make!
