Frame iteration question

Hello, I have a question on frame iteration and LUA scope (I am quite new to LUA). What I want to do is make a function that creates a bunch of child frames that connect to the parent frame and shoves them in a table but I haven't been able to make my attempts work. The reason I'd like to have a table is so that I can then iterate over them easily and change attributes.

Code below:

Code:
 
local frame = createframe('frame', 'frame', UIPARENT)
local frameCache = {}


local function = frameInit(name, x)
--make movable, allow mouse interaction, call makeMiniFrame x number of times

--relevent portion
   for i = 1, x, 1 do
      makeMiniFrame("frame" .. i, frame)
      table.insert(frameCache, "frame" .. i)
   end
end

local makeMiniFrame, otherFrameFunction
do
   makeMiniFrame = function(name, parent)
      local f = CreateFrame('Frame', name, parent)
      otherFrameFunction()
      return f
   end

   otherFrameFunction = function(name)
      if name then
         f = name
      end
      f: --dostuff to frame
   return f
end

--REGISTER EVENTS
Is this the correct way of approaching this or am I completely off base?
