Graduation Cupcakes

My cousin Joey is graduating, so our girls (ages 9 & 11) made some graduation cupcakes to celebrate! We got our inspiration from What's New, Cupcake? by Karen Tack & Alan Richardson.

First, we frosted a batch of cupcakes in Joey's school colors.  My go-to cupcake recipe is Starlight Yellow Cake from Betty Crocker (1991).  To make a graduation hat cupcake topper, just invert a small peanut butter cup, and affix a chocolate square with a dollop of frosting.  You could also use chocolate dipped cookies, but the ones I found at the store were too rectangular, so the chocolate squares worked better for us.  We snipped up some Fruit by the Foot for the tassel.  We melted a bit of chocolate to stick the tassels to the mortarboards. 

Happy Graduation, Joey!!
