Sock cupcakes are not real cupcakes that look like socks, but rather socks that look like cupcakes. A sock cupcake is an artful way of folding the socks so that they look like the delicious dessert. Folding socks into a cupcake shape is not difficult and only takes a few minutes. Use cupcake socks to decorate baby gifts, tables at a baby shower, a kid's birthday party or any other place that could benefit from cupcake decorations.
Things You'll Need
- Pairs of ankle socks (socks with decorative edges look best)
- Cupcake papers
- ½- or 1-inch thick ribbon
- Clear nail polish
Turn the socks wrong side out. Cuff one of the socks like bobby socks from the 1950s. Roll the top of the sock down one time to the ankle of the sock.
Push the foot of the sock into the bottom of the cuffed part of the sock. Roll the sock slightly to form a small depression in the top of the sock.
Roll the second sock into a horizontal roll from the toe to the top of the sock. Roll the edges slightly off center to create a pointed top edge on the sock.
Stuff the rolled sock into the first sock. Adjust the placement of the sock layers to make the rolled sock look like whipped icing on the top of the cupcake. You may have to push the sock into place with your hands if it is too high.
Place the sock cupcake inside a cupcake paper. Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to wrap around the bottom of the cupcake and tie into a two-inch bow. Coat the edges of the ribbon with clear nail polish to prevent fraying. Tie the bow around the cupcake paper and the bottom of the sock to secure the paper to the sock cupcake.
