70’s Disco Dance Ball Cakes and Cupcakes


My daughter decided to have a Disco Dance Party for her 11th birthday celebration. We played all the greatest 70’s disco music and the girls danced all night long. For the cupcakes, we created a Disco Ball Cupcake platter. Not only did it come out great, but my kids had a blast creating it. Although I supervised, they did a lot of the work themselves as you can see from the photos below. The party guests commented on how cool it was and we surprised e we made it ourselves. I will provide step-by-step instructions below on how we made our Disco Ball Cupcake Platter.

We purchased a large circular cake board for the platter. Using shiny black wrapping paper, we covered the board taping it on the bottom. The black wrapping paper coordinated nicely with the disco party theme.  Using a sharp knife, we cut a small slice off one side of the styrofoam ball. This enabled the ball to stand upright. We painted the ball using sliver glitter paint since there would be a small space in between the glass mirrors and we didn’t want the white styrofoam to be seen.

Disco Ball Cupcake Platter Supplies

Once the ball was completely dry (overnight), we hot glued the tiles to the ball in a random pattern. Glass tile mosaics are available in a variety of sizes including: 1/2″, 5/8″, 3/4″ and 1″. We used a combination of 1/2″ and 3/4″ tiles on our disco ball and ended up using about 200-300 tiles to cover it completely. The size of your glass mosaic tiles will determine how many tiles you will need to cover the 6″ ball. You may want to consider purchasing these glass tiles in bulk or leaving more space between the tiles to cut down on expenses.

Making the Disco Ball

We baked 24 cupcakes in sliver foil liners. The silver liners coordinated wonderfully with the disco ball theme. We tinted vanilla icing blue, orange, pink and green to coordinate with the tableware we selected for the party.  I always use Wilton icing paste when tinting frosting. Once the cupcakes were cooled, we frosted them and topped each cupcake with a black musical note edible sugar decoration and silver sprinkles.  The cupcakes were placed on the platter around the disco ball arranging them by color.  We decorated the platter with glittering 70’s disco theme party confetti.
