I can either do orange or strawberry cake with pink and orange frosting, but the ballerina part is where the fun begins. I'm thinking cupcakes in tutus, but there's gotta be something I can do on top of each one. And if I did tutus, would I have to make them myself, or do they sell such things. I wonder if I could find hair bows made of tulle that could somehow work.

It's for a 3rd birthday, and I only need 4 - 6 cupcakes.

why don't you cut circles of flower or modelling paste and frill the edges with a cocktail stick? a couple of layers will make the top look like a tutu...with a strawberry on top!

i so wanted to make tutus for my neighbor's daughter's bday cuppies earlier this month. i wanted to get some sort of ruffled ribbon that i could glue on to cuppie wrappers (i made w/ cricut). i couldn't find anything good enough at michaels or hobby lobby and never made it in time to a fabric store. instead i just bought scrapbook accents with a ballet theme, hot-glued them to skewers, and stuck those in as toppers.

metria- the scrapbook/skewer idea is great. I think I've figured out a way to get tulle onto cupcakes using the tutorial I found here for making tutus: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2048367

I'll see if I can find jumbo hair bands or just use elastic cut to size so that it doesn't crush the cupcake. If all goes well, the little girl can wear the cupcake tutus as little bracelets or hair bows or something. I wonder if I can find ballet candy molds and make ballet shoe toppers out of candy melts...

What are you planning to do? I have a baby shower, too, but I haven't thought about what I want to do yet.

I saw this a while back and just loved it:

I'd love for the cake and other dessert plates to be resting on tutus!
