Cupcake decor....

I *guess* this goes in the kitchen? We are doing a music party for my son's first birthday. For his cake, we are doing turntables. I wanted to have cupcakes too, and want it retro looking. So, cupcakes with cassette tapes or boomboxes or something like that is what I am looking for. I saw some cassette tape molds, but I don't think I would get them in time (party is 22 days). Our skill set is pretty low. Like, I don't work with fondant, etc. I don't mind using different candies, etc, though. Any ideas? DH thought to maybe make them look like speakers, but figured the details wouldn't really show up well (with our skills ). We have Joanns, Michaels and AC Moore nearby and I have checked JoAnns a bit, but can't find something that would work. Any ideas? Thanks!

look in scrap booking at joanns or micheals. Or maybe print on card stock and cut circles around it with a circle punch .

What about making little headphones on top of the cupcakes? My first thought was those tiny mini oreos fore the speaker bit and whip liquorish for the wires.

Now you'll have to post pictures of your mad cupcake decorating skillz.

I need to get working on Austen's party. I can't believe next month she will be one.
