DD2 has decided she wants a cake themed birthday party this year. I'm thinking of making her an outfit with "sprinkles" on her top and a long colorful tutu to resemble a cupcake. Other than that, I'm drawing a blank on ideas. When I look up "cake themed birthday party" on pinterest, all I can find are cakes for various themed parties. Maybe I just need to be more specific?

What are some cute things I can do or make for her party? I'm not particularly crafty, but I want to try and change that this year.

Go back to pinterest and put in "cupcake themed birthday".  I just did that and there were some cute decorating ideas.  Not a lot, but it'll help get the idea going.

Cupcake liner garland, a cake bar with different cakes, you could make a little "bakery" with a sign and fake awning (look on Pinterest), lots of pastel colors, people could decorate their own cupcakes...keep adjusting your Pinterest searches and you can find lots of ideas.

I made this with an old lamp shade. Felt panty hose stuffing and elastic might be cute. You could do a game pin the candles on the cake. Decorate your own cypcakes

 Last year I made cupcakes and let the kids do their own frosting and toppings. I got a bunch of candy, cookies, nuts, sprinkles and put them in the cupcake tin's.

You could also make the invites in the shape of a cake. I've seen streamers with cakes/cupcakes on them.
