A great idea for a childrens' party is to make a pile of mini cakes and supply tubes of icing and little decorations. They'll have lots of creative fun designing their own cupcakes

I'm having my daughter's 1st birthday party at home outside in July and am trying to keep the cost down. I want to make the centerpieces. Does anyone have any ideas for a "Cupcake" themed birthday party outside on a hot day in July? Please don't say the cupcake holder with cupcakes, I would like something different. Any other ideas for anything else for the party is much appreciated. Thanks.

Have you thought of a giant cupcake as the birthday cake? Use a deep round bowl or pan for this. Cut a frilly circle from waxed or parchment paper to line the pan. Ice and decorate as desired, perhaps putting the candle in a small cup cake in center of cake. Isn't there a Cupcake in the Strawberry Shortcake stories? I'd Google and see.
Use a cupcake liner shaped container and make a domed shaped arrangement out of white carnations or pom-pom like flowers. Lots of die cut machines have a cupcake shape which could be used for invitations and goodie bags, etc.
