Very Cute Cupcake Pillows for a Teen Girl's Bedroom
Decorative Throw Pillows as Cute as Cupcakes, but without the calories!
Cupcake throw pillows make a cute accent for a girl's bedroom or a college dorm room. Done up in bright colors or sugar-sweet pastels, in fresh cotton prints or cuddly soft plush, a cupcake pillow is just plain good fun.
Cupcake shaped pillows or accent pillows in unique cupcake prints - there's even one version for sale on Amazon that's - or you can stuff it with micro beads to make it into a beanbag if an air-filled pillow is not your preference. If there's a cupcake fan in your family, inflatabletake a look at these goodies! Or just keep on scrolling to check out a few of my hand-picked soft cushy favorites, below.

Chocolate Cupcake Pillow - Yummy-Looking Gift for Young Girls
Have you seen this one? Frankly, I was a bit put off by the mixed reviews on Amazon, but it seems that some of the people who ordered this may have not realized that it's not applique - rather, it's a photograph of a real cupcake, printed in extreme close-up on an 18" x 16" throw pillow. You can see it better in the video below.
Adele has one!
