DIY sock cupcakes

Sock cupcakes are a great way to display socks as a gift. Or you could just display your own socks like this, if you really want to.

What you'll need:
  • One pair of socks (matching or not)
  • Some muffin cases or large cupcake cases. Make sure to use at least two together for each sock cake, as it gives it a bit more strength.
  • That's it. I just wanted to put another bullet point because things look nice in 3s.

Here's a little video I did to show you how I make sock cupcakes.

Were you able to follow along? Have you made some already? If so, I'd love to see - just leave a link in the comments.

How strange: I'm craving cake all of a sudden.

Special thanks to Mr Pippa for helping. He created the backing track with the power of his mind. And his bass. And GarageBand. Didn't he do well?


  1. You forgot to pass on my apologies for the bad timing and general sloppiness! Love the video though.

  2. Super clear. Going to have a go and make some baby ones for for my friend. Thank you.

  3. I love these! I'm making hampers to take to family in October (for Christmas) and these will be perfect edible cake replacements - thank you so much :)

  4. Saw these on a craft stall at the weekend and thought 'I can do that!' thanks for the tutorial.
