A customer asked if I could do 'Firefly' themed cupcakes, but I have never seen the show, so I was wondering if some people who have seen it can offer some ideas of 'Firefly' themed toppers I can put on the cupcakes? I tried Google and not much at all came up.

AThe spaceship from the show is iconic. You should be able to make toppers in that shape.

The 'bad guys' wore blue latex gloves. You could make simple toppers of those.

The show had a unique style of American Western with Chinese influences. Lots to work with there.

Let me know if you have any specific questions and please share some photos of what you come up with.

Chinese characters - as in characters for words, not characters who are people.


A brown coat




a 'leaf on the wind'


a strawberry


Jayne's hat would be an easy one


the 'Blue Sun' logo


Wash's hawiian shirt


Zoe's leather band choker


pink ruffles like Kaylee's ballgown


the kitchen had a floral pattern painted on the walls


A Bible or a dog collar for Shepherd Book


Red  drapes like Inara's shuttle


Just some thoughts that might give you some things to Gogle. I'm a fan. :)

As a Firefly fan, I suggest you do research by watching the entire series.  It's only 14 episodes and a great show! ;)  I can just imagine how happy I would be to say I was watching Firefly for work purposes.


If you haven't got time or interest for that though, there have been some great suggestions.  I really like:


- Jayne's hat

- Strawberry

- Pistol

- Blue glove

- The ship itself, if you can manage it on a small scale

- the word "Shiny!"
