Graduation Cupcakes

. . . because graduation is just one more excuse to play with your food . . .
Aren't these cupcakes the cutest? You just make regular old cupcakes, add food coloring to frosting to match school colors, then top off with mortarboard hats made of candy

(mini Reese's peanut butter cups turned upside down, small squares of Ghirardelli dark chocolate, the top of a Dots candy, and sour candy that comes in rainbow strips that I forgot the name of ; "glue" them all together with a mixture of powdered sugar and water).
Voila! Oh so cute cupcakes. A big thank you to Mimi of Mimi's Kitchen for the inspiration.

Very cute! We did a similar idea without the cupcakes -- just used the "cap and gown." I think maybe we used icing for "glue" -- I don't remember.

Congratulations to the graduate(s)!

Thanks for the congratulations, Barbara H. and Joanne. Barbara, I'm wondering what your goodies looked like -- did you post about it? I will have to go hunt :)

I have such a weakness for that kind of stuff, cupcakes + anything.

I wish I'd seen these a couple weeks go. Although I doubt I could've fit 'em into my schedule.
Thanks, and congrats!

These are fantastic. You're a very clever baker! I'm enjoying all your recipes... the hard-boiled eggs below look unique and yummy.

Thanks for visiting Chrysalis recently. (Your list of current books is fabulous! Biblical Manhood/Womanhood is a "must- have" in every Christian woman's library. :~D

These are amazing graduation cupcakes. I am willing to eat all of these now. I also need the inspirations for various things for our (my twin sister and I) graduation day. We are going to have a chic fairy themed celebration party in pink and white color scheme. Have booked one of the beachside event venues Chicago for this epic party.
