EASY Mini Cupcake Graduation Caps! So fun and easy to make! Your guests will enjoy the mini cupcakes, grahams, & candy!

Graduation is coming up next week!!

Do you know someone who is graduating?

My BIL graduated from ASU so I decided to make a few goodies last week that I wanted to share with you over the next few days.

The first are some Mini Cupcake Graduation Caps that are so simple and easy and were a HUGE hit, especially with the kiddos!

SUPPLIES:

– Chocolate Cake Mix (and ingredients for that)

– Mini Cupcake Liners and Pan

– Chocolate Frosting

– Keebler Deluxe Grahams

– Pull n Peel Licorice (or another candy that can act as the graduation tassel)

– Mini M&Ms

– Knife

DIRECTIONS:

1. Begin by making your cupcakes in mini cupcake pans. When done freeze for a few hours so they are easier to work with. Cut off tops so when you turn them over they lie flat on a surface.

2. Add frosting to the tops (actual bottoms of the cupcake). Then added chocolate graham cracker on top. To make it easier for myself I added the frosting to a bag, cut off the corner tip and piped it on.

3. Cut pieces of pull n peel for the tassels. I cut mine a little shy of two inches. I then rolled a marker to flatten both ends so it would be easier for the m&m to stay on top and it looked more like a tassel on the end. (P.S. I’m hating saying the word tassel over and over, so I apologize – ha!)

From there you will pipe on a small amount of frosting to the top center of the graham cracker to stick the licorice too. Then you will add another small amount on top of the licorice for the m&m to stick to.

Voila.

Easy. Cute and Fun!

You can even stick these on top of another cupcake or insert a stick in the bottom and make “pops” out of them. Lots of possibilities!!

Thank you for creating this web site and sharing your viewpoint. I enjoy reading it during my lunch break at work. It is nice to take my thoughts off work even though for only 30 mins. Cheers
