The Rare Cupcake Hat is a non-member land clothing item. It was formerly sold at Jam Mart Clothing and was first released on April 1, 2013, for Rare Item Monday. On September 8, 2014, it was once again released at the same shop for another Rare Item Monday. Another variant was introduced on October 21, 2019, to celebrate the Night of the Phantoms.
The Rare Cupcake Hat is a large cupcake that sits upon a Jammer's head to be worn as a hat. The cupcake has a light blue wrapper on the bottom and white frosting on the top. The frosting is covered with sprinkles that are colored pink, light blue, and light orange. There is also a pink candle on the very top of the cupcake with a light orange flame. This item comes in only two varieties.
- Its former price was 777 Gems. This was changed on its second release on September 8, 2014.
- It is one of the few items to have a price that is not a multiple of 5 (e.g. 770, 775, 780, etc). This may be because it was released on April Fools' Day; Many other items released around this day also have an unusual price, such as the items sold in the April Fools' Party.
- Its second release was supposedly for Animal Jam's fourth birthday.
- It is one of the few items that was featured for multiple Rare Item Mondays.
- When worn on a seal's head, it appears to be glitched as the entire hat appears in a darker shade of each color.
- It is one of the few Rare Item Monday releases that does not have a regular, non-rare counterpart.
