Donut go anywhere— we know that was a terrible joke, but we have even more dessert costume ideas!

Is coffee a dessert? We'd like to argue that it is if it's full of cream and sugar! If you're looking for some other sweet dessert costume ideas, it doesn't hurt to think a little outside the box. Chocolate-covered strawberries? Check. Campfire s'mores? Double-check! You can even find costumes of your favorite international desserts like macarons! Comme c'est mignon.
