How to Make Leg Lamp Cupcakes

One of my favorite Christmas Movies is A Christmas Story and I can watch it over and over every year. One of the iconic pieces from the movie is the famous Leg Lamp that Ralphie’s father won and placed in their window. It was his “Major Award” for completing a Crossword Puzzle.

So being I just LOVE Cupcakes I decided to design some Leg Lamp Cupcakes inspired by the movie. You have your Wood Crate Cupcake Wrapper (Just like the one it was shipped in from the Movie)  – remember in the movie when Ralphie’s father got it? “FRAGILE (FRA-GEE_LAY) it must be Italian!”  That was too funny. Then you have your Leg Lamp Topper. I think they came out just as I had envisioned them.

These Leg Lamp Cupcakes would be the perfect addition to your Holiday or Christmas Party. They would be extra perfect to go along with watching A Christmas Story Movie with friends and family too. Or maybe you are planning A Christmas Story Party !!! That would be AWESOME.

My Leg Lamp Cupcakes are so EASY to make and I have done most of the work for you already. With my FREE Printable Leg Lamp Cupcake Topper & Wrapper all you need to do is Bake and Frost your Cupcakes, Print and Cut Out the pieces – Assemble and that is it!!!

Come on I will show you Just How Easy as I made them for the 1st time myself…..

Here is What I used to create my Leg Lamp Cupcakes:

So here are my Supplies ready to go. That is it – I told you these are so SIMPLE.

Print out your FREE Printable Leg Lamp Cupcake Topper & Wrapper. make sure to print on a Heavy Card Stock Paper. I actually used Photo paper for the Leg Lamp and Card Stock for the Crate Wrapper. Then Cut Out all your pieces. Then take your Toothpick and Tape it to the back of your Leg Lamp Topper.

Then Frost your Cupcake. Wrap Cupcake with Crate Wrapper and tape back together to secure it. Now take your Leg Lamp and insert into top of Cupcake. That is it!!!

NOTE: You can also add Shredded Coconut or Toasted Coconut to the top of the frosting to get the look of the shredded paper packaging

And there you have it – A SWEET Major Award !!!

Kids and Adults are going to love these.

If you create some Leg Lamp Cupcakes for your Holiday I would love to see them. Send me your Photos so I can share with my readers.

Check Out these Leg Lamp Cupcakes made by one of my readers, Ann. These look amazing with the white frosting – it looks like the packaging !! Thanks Ann for sharing your photo with us – I love these !!!

Enjoy and Be Safe this Holiday – “Don’t Shoot your Eye Out !!”
