Grad Party Cupcakes

It is officially graduation season! I love this time of year because everyone is so nervous & excited about the future. But the best part of it all (along with getting a degree!) is the parties. My brother graduates this month so I’ve been busy planning a party for family & friends.

My signature party dish is cupcakes, so of course I had to go with a graduation theme. These are super easy to make & look almost too good to eat!

To make this adorable yet edible dessert, start with your favorite cake mix & make cupcakes. Choose either vanilla or chocolate frosting & then you can add sprinkles that represent school colors. To make the graduation caps, I followed a stencil outline & then cut them out & colored them in. It is time consuming, but they turned out great! Once the caps are cut & colored, use Scotch tape to adhere a toothpick to the back of the hat. Stick it in the decorated cupcake & you’re set!

If you don’t have a grad hat stencil, you can make a different version here.
