Princess

 

The easiest way to add a theme into a design is to add a plastic toy as a topper. In a princess-themed party tiny tiaras or small pictures of the loved princess can be added onto toothpicks. Even more entertaining and interactive for the children, plastic rings as toppers will give each child a ring as a party favor.
 
Birthday Princess CupcakesBesides the lesser cost compared to a birthday cake, cupcakes are a great alternative because children can help out in their construction from start to finish. It's less messy when little hands are involved. You also don't have to worry about cake plates, silverware and all the extra trash.

Present/Gift Cupcakes

Candy is often your best resource for decorating cupcakes. For present designs you can use any type of flexible ribbon or licorice candy. Ice the cupcakes in colors that match the theme of the event. Prepare bows from shoestring licorice, strips of fruit leather or sour ribbons. Use the microwave in short 5 second bursts to soften candy if it is hard to shape or tie. Place your candy bows in the center of each cupcake and use extra candy to cross the top like ribbon on a present or even drape and curl off the edge. These cupcakes will be a hit at any gift giving occasion!

Record Cupcakes

Before you break out the poodle skirts and letter jackets for your next sock hop or 50's themed party, bake up a batch of these fun record cupcakes. You'll need chocolate icing, the darker the better, and fruit-flavored Life Savers candy. Ice the tops with a spatula. Use slightly more than you would for normal cupcakes. Use a new clean comb (the cheap kind from the dollar store work perfectly) and spin it around the top in a circle to make the lines on the record. Place a colorful candy in the center and press down so the top is even with the top of the icing for the record label, complete with hole!

Baby Bassinet Cupcakes

 
Celebrate the arrival of a new bundle of joy with bassinet decorations. You'll have to do a little construction for these and a little pre-planning. For 12 cupcakes you'll need six extra to construct the top of the bassinets. Cut each "top" cupcake in half and place at the back edge of the "base" cupcake. Ice the two pieces together, place a little icing under the "top" to help it stick. Feel free to go pink or blue crazy if you know the gender of the baby or yellow if you don't. Pipe white details around the front edge and up the round part of the top (dots look particularly dainty when done with a writing tip). For an extra special step you can include pre-made sugar bottles or even babies inside each bassinet.

Cartoons or Movies

 
Cars Movie CupcakesChoose a small iconic symbol of the cartoon that you can incorporate into the design. If your child wants Spongebob Squarepants consider square cupcakes or ones with pineapple-shaped jelly candies on top. If Cars is a favorite, car and truck-shaped candies may be the ticket. You get the idea.
 
If your child is older and wants a movie-themed birthday party, consider an item that speaks to the movie. It could be a color or a shape. A young girl who is obsessed with a new vampire movie might like them in black and red.

Duckies in a Pond Cupcakes

You can brighten up a shower or your child's party with these cute cupcakes. Start icing using brightly-colored blue frosting. Roll a jumbo marshmallow in your hand to form it into a ball. Dip the now warm and sticky marshmallow in yellow sanding sugar or yellow dyed coconut and place it a little off center in the blue "pond." Use royal icing to adhere two mini chocolate chips for pupils making sure the white extends around the chip to create the whites of the eyes. Use orange-colored fruit leather, candy corn, or the tips of horn-shaped corn chips for the beak. You can also create just one ducky in a larger pond by placing plain blue iced cupcakes in a group, icing one yellow and then following the steps above to have one ducky in a larger pond.
