80th Birthday Cupcakes

80th birthday cupcakes have become one of the hottest trends today.  Move over cake--time for an individual, personalized temptation.  

Easy to eat, cupcakes are little pieces of art that can easily be customized to coordinate with any theme.  From delicious flavors to stylish colors, it only seems appropriate that the cupcakes and the display should be full of sweet details.

Say it with flowers.  With a little imagination, just about anything can become cupcakes.  A fanfare of colors and brilliant blooms, or should we say cupcakes, mimics the beauty of a country garden.  Your guests will not know whether to pick them or eat them.

Decorate cupcakes with edible frosting rounds that are made of thin sheets of frosting.  Simply peel and press onto cupcakes, cookies, or any other flat, soft-frosted dessert.

Light up your cupcake display.

A light-up cupcake stand is a fun and eye-catching way to display your cupcakes. Not only does a light-up cupcake stand provide a unique and festive display, but it also adds a touch of ambiance to your dessert table. The soft, glowing lights create a warm and inviting atmosphere that will surely impress your guests.

Variety is the spice of life that offers an escape from the usual.  We love the lively use of color that adds to the visual excitement of this display.  And the icing on the cake is that it also serves as part of the party decor.

The skinny on 80th birthday cupcakes. . .

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.

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.

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.

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.
