How to Make a Sock Cupcake

 Sounds silly right?! It's a fun way to give the gift of warm feet with zero calories.

What you need:
  • a pair of socks, fuzzy & pastelwork
  • ribbon
  • cupcake liner
What you do:

 Cuff or fold down the top of one sock.

Stuff the toe part of the sock up in the cuff.

Form into a cup.

Roll-up the second sock.

Roll so that it looks like icing on a cupcake.

Carefully put the bottom of the rolled sock into the cup.

Just squeeze it in there and form to look like a cupcake.


Tie a ribbon around the cupcake so that it's where the 'icing' meets the 'cake'. Set in a cupcake liner.


There you have it a zero calorie cupcake!
Makes a great Valentine's Day gift or party favor.



**UPDATE**

I'm so excited! My very sweet friend made ME a sock cupcake! She wrapped it up beautifully and I just love the over sized cupcake liner she used. Thank you, thank you!!
