How to Make a Lalaloopsy Cupcake Cake

Just about every little girl loves that little pink-haired rag doll, "Lalaloopsy." I made this cute little Lalaloopsy cupcake cake for my daughter's birthday last year. Not only was it simple to make, but it was a pretty fun project, as well. My daughter was so excited that she got to help me frost and put the flowers on the cupcakes.

Below I have some easy-to-follow directions on how to make this cake. I hope you have as much fun as we did making this cute little treat. There is no greater gift than creating something to share with your family.

Most of the ingredients and tools you will need for this cake are pretty cheap. Besides, nothing can top the smile on your little one's face when she sees the finished product. I hope you have as much fun making this as we did.

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 1 hour 40 min
Yields: Serves 24


  • 24 cupcake wrappers, whatever design you fell will match with your child's birthday theme
  • 2 boxes of cake mix, whatever flavor or brand you desire
  • 2 containers of frosting, I usually use vanilla because you can change the color more easily
  • 1 small tube of orange gel icing, you only need a few drops of this to change the color of your icing
  • 24 toothpicks, you will need one for each cupcake you make
  • 1 large cake board, I just went with a basic one but you can go as fancy as you want
  • 1 Lalaloopsy sugar creations, cupcake decorating kit (there are several different characters you can choose from)
  • 1 tube of pink gel icing, or purple if you prefer that color instead
  • 1 large sheet of parchment paper


  1. Mix and bake the cupcakes according to the mix you chose. Make sure not to over-fill the muffins cups; you want to fill them about halfway.
  2. Once they are done baking, remove the muffin cup from your pan, place them on some parchment paper and let them cool for a couple of hours, so the frosting doesn't melt.
  3. While they are cooling, take all your vanilla icing, put it in a bowl, and add about three drops of the orange gel icing to turn the mixture yellow. Make sure to mix it well so you get a nice, even color.
  4. Once your cupcakes are cooled, start putting on your frosting mixture. Make sure you get a nice, even coverage on the entire cupcake.
  5. Now take the pink gel frosting and put three rings on each cupcake. Make the smallest ring closest to the center, and the biggest ring closest to the edge.
  6. Now it's time to use your toothpicks. Make sure to use a new toothpick for each cupcake. Start by taking the toothpick from the corner to center making sure you wipe the tip off with each stroke you make. Keep each line about an inch apart. Once you get all the way around the cupcake, you should have what looks like a flower (see video below). Finish this off with a pink dot of gel icing on each cupcake.
  7. Once you are finished with this, line up your cupcakes on your cake board, putting two rolls of four on the top, two rolls of three, three rolls of two and two more rolls of two placed to the side at the bottom.
  8. Gently place the Lalaloopsy cupcake kit on top of the cupcakes. Then outline it with the pink gel icing.

You don't have to be some big-time cake decorator to make this Lalaloopsy cupcake cake. Plus, your little ones will get a kick out of being able to help you make this cute little creation. There are a couple of different variations you can design on your cupcakes, as well. But for this cake, I just picked a design I thought would be cute and simple, so that my daughter and I could work on it together.

      Thanks for the video. That really helped. I think if I saw the kit itself, it would help. I love making cupcakes, and I'm always looking for new ideas.

      I made a renewable cupcake tower you might want to see. I wrote a Hub about that. I make cupcakes for all occasions.

      Thanks again, Mary

      I have read your instructions several times. Maybe I'm just tired, but I don't get it! I wish you had taken photos as you went along. I'm lost. You say to make the rings on the top of the cupcakes?? Then you make some lines?? Then you place the kit on top of the cupcakes??

      Your finished cake is very pretty, but I just don't understand how you did it. Oh, well....
