OK, so these are more of a crafty packaging idea than an actual make, BUT it is a rather more interesting way to present an otherwise not-very-interesting gift.
I give you…
I’ve made a lot of sock cakes, they are great for stocking fillers, or putting in party bags, sleepover goody bags etc. They also work well in pamper kits and a fair few have made their way into various swap packages (hands up if YOU got one!)
The best bit is, they are quick & inexpensive to put together, but are fun to receive (so I’m told. I’ve NEVER received one. I feel left out & decidedly disadvantaged by the whole thing.)
BAKING SOCK CAKES
What you need :
Socks : 1 pair for each cake.
(If you are making a batch, check out multipacks in places like Primark, Target etc)
- cupcake cases/wraps (I find wraps work better because they are sturdier & hold their shape better)
- Something to wrap them in (presentation bags/ treat bags/ cupcake boxes)
- Decorations (something to pop on the top, this can be the toppers that came with your wrappers, a hair clip that matches your sock design, a tiny bath bomb…anything you can use as ‘the cherry on top’)
- Ribbons or fancy string/twine
Now you can gift wrap them:
Do you have a fun way to gift a not so interesting item? Please share in the comments.
