Hello all -

So I have a birthday party for a little girl turning 9. The mother has requested cupcakes. 1/2 to be very girly/pink/etc. No problem, easy enough there, have a million ideas. The other half are to be decorated for the boys.....HELP - I want the cupcakes to somewhat go together as they will be displayed together at the party. I am having a creative block as to what to put on top of the boys cupcakes. Any ideas? The girls cupcakes will be either hotpink/black flowers/butterflies (with black or zebra liners) or I can go the soft pink/whites, sparkly route. The cupcakes will be iced with a buttercream swirl so it's just something that would be a topper/accent like the small flowers/butterflies for the girls....hope that makes sense!

I was thinking of doing stars or polka dots or little spirals of fondant (not sure of the color) for the boys but I'm blank after that I don't know how I should get them to coordinate!

Maybe if you do butterflies for the girls you could do bugs for the boys!

Excellent idea Bturpin. Butterflies and ladybugs for the girls and then snails, spiders, worms for the boys. 9 year olds would love it.

That's an idea, I'll have to play around with that...I'm just trying to think what colors would be mature enough for a 9 yr old that would go with the pink stuff...maybe green? I think I may stick with the hotpink for the girls and do a dark neon green/blue for the boys

thanks so much!

Purple/lilac? That goes with pink but it's not too girly icon_smile.gif I like the creepy crawlies idea for the boys, and cuter little critters for the girls.

I would probably go with 3 colors making the common color the main one for example
for the girl: use avocado green with pink, pink being the topper that is the butterfly or so...
for the boy: use also avocaod green with blue, blue being also the topper that is the bug or so...

that way if theyr displayed together there wont be a huge differnce in colors or go with black (main) , hot pink & royal blue....
