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 inflatable - 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, take a look at these goodies! Or just keep on scrolling to check out a few of my hand-picked soft cushy favorites, below.

Have a DIY yen to make your own cupcake pillow? Don't miss the free or low-cost sewing patterns for cupcake pillows I've rounded up, and some free crochet patterns too!

Funky Plush Cupcake Pillows - Whimsical Throw Pillows in Cupcake Shapes

Measuring a generous 16" x 19" each and made in soft huggable plush fabric, here's a line of cupcake throw pillows from Switzerland with a selection of clear bright colours, cute embroidered detail and ribbon trim - who could resist?

Decorated with heart shapes and a white-polka-dot purple ribbon - or any variation on the pretty pastel color theme, with sparkles and ribbons to make the sweet pillows super-fancy.


Faux Suede Cupcake Pillow - Soft, Sweetly Pink, and Surprisingly Practical

Here's a sweet accent pillow for a girl's bedroom décor, or to toss as a whimsical conversation piece onto your favorite chair, or to brighten the dorm room of a college-bound cupcake fan! It's a 16-inch square softie in luxurious faux suede fabric, printed one one side in the tasty theme du jour. If you and/or your princess daughter (whoever gets the pillow, in the end) like nibbling your treats in bed, and the gooey icing just seems to get everywhere, rest assured - this pillow has a removable cover for easier cleaning in case of those wayward and slightly sticky crumbs.

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!

The video here, in which Adele Celeste shows off the one she'd scored in a catalog gives a much better idea than just the photographs of what the real Yummy Cupcake Pillow actually looks like.

Disney Kingdom Parlor Play Cupcake Pillow - Pink on Pink

Here's a sweet accent pillow for a little girl's bedroom décor, or to toss as a whimsical conversation piece onto your family room couch, or to brighten the dorm room of a college-bound cupcake fan!

      My favorite is the pop art one. Although girls would love these, I think many of them are suitable for a sofa or sitting room with the right décor,

      @CruiseReady: Elegant, aren't they? The leather-look printed cotton pillow is especially clever, I thought - one of my new favourite Zazzle artists came up with that one.

      They are really unique :) I've never seen anything like them before and I think they can be a great gift for someone who likes desserts, cupcakes or making them :)

      Chocolate -- same as my taste in everything. These would also look cute on a breakfast nook bench in a kitchen

      I like the rosy cheeked one. He looks very happy. I think that he would make a nice focal point for a couch or chair.
