The skinny on 80th birthday cupcakes. . .

Delicious.
Lemon, red velvet or strawberry flavors are popular cake choices. But since this is an individual treat, you can mix it up and choose several different flavors so everyone enjoys their personal favorite. And for those who believe if it ain't broke don't' fix it, play it safe with classic chocolate and vanilla flavors.

Fillings.
Try something different, and take advantage of adding a yummy filling for a surprise treat. It's about mixing the old with the new. Pipe vanilla pudding or any flavor of sweet mixture into the center of Grandma's tried and true cake for a new spin on an old favorite.

Frostings.
Who say's you can't please everybody? Add some flair to the traditional yellow cupcake with different flavors of frosting. Chocolate, strawberry, lemon, cream cheese . . . the list goes on and on. Tickle everyone's taste buds with a variety of flavors.

Cupcake liners.
It's those little details that incorporate 80th birthday party ideas into the food presentation. Choose cupcake liners that carry the theme of the party or complete the color scheme. The cupcake liner is always noticed, so make yours special.

Presentation.
Never before have there been so many options to show off this individual treat. Serve your delicious delicacies from creative cupcake stands. Convenient and easy to use, cupcake stands have become a way to have your cake and eat it too. These stands are so attractive filled with 80th birthday cupcakes that they often become the centerpiece of the table. Add more than one stand along the table for an even bigger cupcake statement.
