Evil Halloween Cupcake!

Ever have one of those ideas to make something that you think will be totally awesome and then you can't seem to execute it in a way that matches the vision?  That's what's happening with my Halloween costume this year.

A cupcake.  It doesn't seem that hard to make.  Slap together a base, find something to represent frosting, bingo and done!  But $40 and 3 pairs of stuffed pink tights (which took about 4 hours to do) later I'm having my doubts as to how cupcake-esque this fabric monstrosity actually looks.  Maybe in some abstract way it sorta, kinda, maybe looks like a cupcake if you squish it and tilt just a little to the left?  Hopefully?

And then there's the fact that 75% of the way through construction, one who is annoyed enough stops to Google "Cupcake costume" and finds that she could purchase one for the same price from Target ready-made.

Epic DIY Fail.  *sigh*
