A Sweet Treat Just for the Feet

While looking for a Christmas present idea for my child’s teacher, I came across this super cute one for a cupcake made out of a pair of socks. This idea has been around and it is certainly not my original idea! I needed something to go with the gift cards I had already purchased…this was the perfect thing!


So here is how I made these cute cupcakes!

You will need:

  • Fuzzy socks (Some of the socks have a pom pom on the ankle, which made for a super cute cupcake topper.)
  • Silicone baking cups (I purchased a pack of 6 from Wal-mart for $2!)
  • Rubber bands
  • Something to wrap them with (I bought a pack of cookie bags with silver cardboard circles for the bottoms from Wal-mart.)

*I bought socks, bags, and silicone wrappers for under 10 bucks….made 6 cupcakes!

How to make the cupcakes:

  • Lay your socks out flat.


  • Roll the socks tightly.


  • Place a rubber band around the bottom and gently pull one sock up to give the height to the shape.


  • Now here’s your cupcake and liner.


  • Place sock in liner and wrap however you would like!
