For my niece's first birthday party, she had a polka dot theme. I made the cupcakes with a Funfetti cake mix, and the frosting was an awesome cream cheese frosting recipe. Then I got Skittles and M & M candies and turned them letter side down on the top to make "polka dots". For her own cake, I made two stacked 9X9 circle cakes and covered it with the frosting and candies. It all matched the tableware and the invitations we made.
