Graduation Cupcakes

With graduation season upon us I thought I’d share with you some cute little cupcakes that I made for our son’s graduation last year. 

Inspiration came from these fun little pops that Bakerella made:


It would be really hard to even possibly make these any cuter, but in my world, everything’s better with a cupcake.  🙂

So, I transformed these babies into cupcake toppers.


I used mini M & M’s and a fruit roll-up in our “school blue” to top off the Ghiradelli chocolate square “caps”. 

I highly recommend refrigerating the Reese’s cups until they’re really cold before peeling them.  It was tough to peel the wrappers off without peeling off some chocolate along with them.

All in all, they turned out well, and our graduate loved them!  🙂


And, just because I’m super proud and can’t help myself, here’s a pic of our grad last year with his brothers and sister.  Melts my heart!


Congrats to all of your grads this year.  Hopefully this cupcake idea will help make their day extra sweet.  🙂
