Carnation Cupcakes

This is another type of centerpiece I created for the big first birthday bash. I saw this idea on the back of a bus once, although the ones I've seen are tiny, actual cupcake size. This arrangement was in a container 8" in diameter. I used all pink carnations to make the "frosting" and used shiny blue berry picks (which were readily available this season) for "sprinkles". The birthday candle is an 8" taper candle, and in the interest of safety, I topped the candles with paper "flames". They were fun to make, and just the right mix of whimsy and elegant for a kid's birthday party. Carnation cupcake as pictured, $30
