Cap and Gown Cupcakes
So I saw an idea for these years and years ago here but thought I would modify it myself using the pull n peel candy and personalizing them according to the school colors.
- You can easily do that with these brightly colored muffin papers, and finding the right colors in the peel candy…that makes it extra special!
Here’s just how easy these graduation cupcakes are to make!
Graduation Dessert Idea
Super easy to make right??!! Just bake some cupcakes. Here’s how to make 6 cupcakes out of a box of cake mix if you just want a few.
- Unwrap an turn a peanut butter cup upside down
- Break off the color of pull n peel you want. I cut those pieces in half lengthwise so they would lay flatter)
- Press those on to the top of your chocolate square with an M&M on top. Place that on top of your p.b. cup with a dollop of frosting.
- They are quick to put together and using the two school colors for the tassels. Muffin papers makes these graduation cupcakes even more fun!
