INSIDE : Learn how to make a customized store bought Baker Costume and DIY Cupcake Costume for your children this Halloween season. It is also perfect for playing dress-up play after the holiday is over!
This year I finally wised up for Halloween! I’ve been making my kiddos coordinating homemade Halloween costumes since they started dressing up (owls, Scuba Divers and Planets). It’s been fun and something I really enjoy doing, but we have a lot of crazy going on in our lives this year so I wanted to go the LOW STRESS Halloween Costume route. Today I am sharing how to customize easy store bought Baker and Cupcake Halloween Costumes for children!
We do a lot of dress-up at our house, so I wanted my kids to be something fun that they can enjoy throughout the year and easy! I still had some creative fun but went 90% store bought and 10% homemade. And you WON’T believe how inexpensive these costumes were, read to the very bottom to see!!

NOTE : I photoshopped all the supplies from Amazon onto the image below for easier viewing (those are not my kids).
How to make a Baker Halloween Costume:
For my son’s baker costume, I went with minimal effort. We already had a big wooden spoon so I painted the top portion of it with pink acrylic paint to match the frosting of my daughter’s cupcake costume. I added a few brightly colored sprinkles as well, because yummy sprinkles!
We added a cute mascara mustache and a tied on some plastic food (like donuts!) and cooking utensils. What a baker!
How to make a Cupcake Halloween Costume:
No adorable Cupcake little girl’s costume would be complete without a wand, so I made her a cupcake sprinkle wand! I found a clear plastic cup with straw at Target on sale. The straw had a small lip at the end and I used that to my advantage. I pulled the straw out as far as the lip would allow and then used hot glue to secure it would stay. I ended up adding a lot of glue to make it nice and secure.
For the sprinkles, I was so happy to find a good use for my Martha Stewart fringe scissors! These scissors honestly cut my time in third. After most of the cup was full of brightly colored sprinkle paper, I added some ribbon embellishments to the outside of the wand for extra sprinkle power.
Add some bright lipstick on the cheeks and my little cupcake with a cherry on top was ready! So precious, I can’t even take it.
Ready for the kicker? For these two adorable Halloween costumes I spent $30!!! I shopped Amazon for the main costumes, Dollar Store for the odds and ends and the rest we already had. Boom, halloween, I’m taking back expensive store bought costumes!
