graduate cupcake

dsc_0803We just launched two new custom graduation invitations, “graduation girl” and “graduation guy.” I know, I know, but once you look at them you’ll understand. One is pink and the other is blue and they are perfect for preschool, high school or college graduation parties.

Okay, so to the cupcakes. These were created by Melanie Hess and they are oh so cute! Here’s what you do. First, ice red velvet cupcakes with chocolate frosting. For the caps, turn a Reeses Peanut Butter cup upside down and top it with a Ghiradelli chocolate square. For the finishing touch, pipe a tassel in your graduate’s school colors (tint white icing and use a #2 tip) and top with a mini M&M for the button.

Happy baking!
