- Wilton Silicon Cupcake Liner
- Felt (Brown for chocolate but pink or cream would also work!)
- T-shirt fabric
- Needle and Thread
- Fabric glue
- Red pom-pom (for a Cherry!)
- Ball pins (for Sprinkles!)
- Tacky glue
1. Cut out one 2" circle from felt.
Cut one long curved piece from felt.
Cut an oval shape from felt and cut a swirl pattern in it. (about 6" x 5")
Cut one circle from knit fabric. (about 4" 3/4)
2. Put curved piece inside the cup and pin to fit. Trim top down.
3. Sew seam. You could also just use fabric glue.
4. Baste around the knit fabric. You can do this by hand or by machine on the longest length.
5. Gather it up till it fits around the top of the 'cupcake'. Sew in place and then turn inside out. It will look sort of like a chef hat.
6. Sew the bottom on but leave an opening.
7. I put a little bit of polyfill in first (I am not sure why...) and then pour in the sand. This is a bit of a challenge but I just kept pushing the sand down so it was packed.
8. Sew the circle closed.
9. Take the oval piece of felt and starting in the center start pinning it down until you get to the end.
It will look like this.
10. Start at the bottom of the 'frosting' sewing the 'frosting' to the top of the cupcake, going around and ending at the top. Then sew pom-pom on.
11. Glue into the Wilton cupcake liner with Tacky glue. Fill with some Ball pins.
*I just wanted to say that although I saw this in a craft book (I can't remember the name of it!) I did change it quite a bit. For one thing the book said to fill it with just polyfill and that was just too light and wouldn't stand up. Very annoying. The sand definitely makes it more sturdy. The other thing was it had you sew right through the bottom of the cup to attach the cupcake and the liner and I just didn't like the look of it. I changed the actual construction too.
