    edible 45's...since he/she was born in 1945?

    uhh...okay, that may be my lamest suggestion today!

    There is always the overdone little RIP/Over the Hill tombstones.

    It would help to know if this was a he or a she and what hobbies they liked. Or better yet, what stuff they hate. If I was to get cupcakes for my husband, it would have edible Elmos on them because he hates Elmo. LOL

    Better yet, visit this site: http://www.cupcakestakethecake.blogspot.com/

    edible flowers and herbs are very elegant and Martha.

    My mother got me started on giving kids tubes of icing to decorate their own with - maybe not for a 60th birthday, though?

    The book Hey There Cupcake! by Clare Crespo has a lot of really cute ideas for cupcake decorations. The only ones I can remember right now are the ones that look like human organs, but there are other neat ones too.

    i love pamthequeen's idea of doing 45's since your boss was born that year...how about taking other famous things from that year, like a little time capsule, and putting them on the cupcakes?

    * an atomic explosion (easily done with red and orange frosting), as they tested it in new mexico that year
    * a little tv set, as that was the year broadcasting really took off
    * famous celebrities of the day (judy garland, sinatra, joan crawford)
    * fdr, truman
    * a 3 cent stamp (they were 3 cents back then!)

    There was just a good article on cupcakes in the May 2005 Sunset magazine. They suggested:
    Mix fancy with fun: Dust cupcakes with cocoa, and sprinkle with bright-color sprinkles
    Whimsical toppings: chocolate jimmies, jelly beans, mini M&Ms, chocolate chips, peanuts, confetti sprinkles, nonpareils and chopped toffee, malted milk balls or dark chocolate.
    Artistic toppings: Shreds of lemon or orange peel, candied lemon or orange peel, toasted coconut, candied ginger, and sugared rose petals.
    Architectural toppings: Little meringues, miniature Oreos, or chunks of chocolate wafer cookies.

    Also, notmartha just link to this cupcake article:

    Have fun!

    This might be a little late, but there's the Cupcakes Take The Cake blog, which is "All Cupcakes, All the Time."
