Sweet 16 Pina Colada Party!

This was a fun party idea for my niece's sweet 16 birthday hosted by her sister (Amber of the butterfly papers ). The party theme was kind of an Orange is the happiest color/ "nectarine" colors and Pina Colada flavors. So much fun to do a cake in such rich summery colors! Orange and Red swirl cake was flavored in Pina Colada, frosting in pineapple with a hint of coconut, topped with 60 Pina Colada cupcakes for the guests!
