Baby Shower Gift: Baby Washcloth Cupcakes Tutorial

I was recently invited to a baby sprinkle for a friend who is pregnant with her second child. The expecting parents already own most of the traditional big ticket items and are waiting until the baby is born to find out the gender, so all the guests contributed to a group gift card in lieu of bringing presents. However, as the known “crafty friend” of the bunch, I couldn’t attend a celebration such as this without having a little something up my sleeve. Colorful baby washcloth cupcakes are my new go-to baby shower DIY and are easily whipped together with a just a couple of inexpensive infant essentials.

With the tag facing up, begin by smoothing out one washcloth onto a flat surface.

Turn down the top corner to begin rolling the washcloth in on itself.

Keep going until you have a fully rolled washcloth taquito.

Set a single sock at the end of the rolled washcloth, placing the sock cuff just below the washcloth edge.

Roll the sock into the washcloth, being careful to keep everything snug until the entire length is coiled.

Tuck the washcloth coil into a silicone cupcake liner. Then, fold the sock cuff in half down around itself to make it resemble a dollop of icing.

I’ve tried using paper liners and found them to be too slippery and flimsy to properly hold the washcloth tight. The silicone provides a little grip to keep the cupcakes shaped up nicely. Plus, they’re totally reusable, and what new mom doesn’t need a few cupcakes on standby while in the throes of midnight feedings?

Garnish each cupcake with a cute embellishment. Scrapbook stickers, small pom-poms or even wrapped candies make ideal toppers.

In order to complete the presentation, I like to gift the cupcakes inside a white bakery box tied with coordinating grosgrain ribbon.
