How to Make A Sock Cupcake

I had a request for the instructions on how I made my sock cupcake.  
Hope you enjoy! 



Here are the items you will need: 
Cricut Imagine
Cupcake Wrappers Lite Cartridge
Yummy Imagine Cartridge
white card stock
spa socks
red pom pom

 I used the new Cricut Craft Room to design the cupcake wrappers. 
I LOVE how you can use a piece of plain white 12x12 cardstock 
and get 3 totally different patterned cupcake wrappers using the Imagine!! 

Cupcake Wrappers Lite - Flowers2-s
Yummy Imagine - Pattern on page 38 (for the brown cupcake wrapper)

 The width is set at 10 inches. 
The height is set at 4.167 inches. 
You can get 3 cupcake wrappers on each 12x12.
This size fit my thick spa socks the best, you may need to
 increase or decrease the size depending on your socks. 


 My pink spa socks are from JoAnn's.  They are thick and very fluffy.  
Start by laying the socks out one on top of the other. 

 Begin to loosely roll socks, using the bottom as your guide.  
I rolled mine so that the heel would be an extra layer of  "icing."

Continue rolling....

 Done....now you just need to tweak it a bit to look like layers. 

 I pinch the inside layers a twist them a little to create a space for the cherry (pom pom).

 Using the bottom of the sock as my guide helps me to roll the socks so they are flat on the bottom.  They fit into wrapper nice and evenly. 


Add a cherry (pom pom) and VIOLA! 
You have a cupcake with ZERO calories and is just as sweet! 

If you make your own sock cupcakes, I would love to see them!
