Serving cupcakes at your graduation party? Need a few graduation cupcake ideas for your graduate?

Themed cupcake decorating is all the rage, but you don’t have to be a trained cake decorator to have some great looking cupcakes for your graduate of any age.

All you need are the right tools and some fun cupcake ideas to delight your party guests.

Super Easy Graduation Cupcakes

Easy is the name of the game when you are planning a graduation party!
What you’ll need:

After baking and frosting your cupcakes, press the Mini Reese’s Cups into the frosting of your cupcakes.

Take some graham cracker squares and dip them in melted chocolate and “glue” them to the top of the peanut butter cups with a little bit of frosting. You could also use Ghirardelli chocolate squares if you don’t want to use graham crackers.

Make the “tassels” from licorice strips (like Twizzlers) or from fruit leather like Fruit Roll Ups. If you just want to use fondant,  cut and roll some thin strips. You can “glue” these onto the top of the graduation hat with a dot of frosting.

Top it off with an M & M or jelly bean in the center of the hat and wallahhh! Graduation Cap Cupcakes.

Now from there, you can use your imagination! Either dip the graham cracker squares into white chocolate candy that you can color with food coloring, or use colored M & M’s. This way, you can show school spirit!

Don’t you love to look at all the wonderfully decorated cupcakes out there? Some of them are so professional-looking that I never thought I could do anything like that, so my cupcakes were always so plain jane.

I searched and searched for ways to give my cupcakes a little more snap in the “visual” department. And what did my eager fingers find? Oodles and Oodles of baking cups, toppers and sticks to decorate with. Add some sprinkles, M & M’s and we’ve decorated a cupcake! And oh, all the ideas out there!

This was great for me because I’d be all thumbs in the fancy decorating department. =( LOL

What helped me the most was to study that beautiful decorated cupcake & figure out how I could make it myself.

Pretty Diploma Graduation Cupcakes

These are lovely, formal looking graduation cupcakes, aren’t they?

The diplomas can be drawn on easily but the choice of color can make a difference depending on whether you want this more formal look, or to show school spirit, use school colors.

Use your graduate’s favorite color or the party theme color. Add edible glitter for some shine.

Draw them onto fondant cutouts or even thin cookies and then put them on the cupcakes. It’s nice to have choices!

Graduation Cupcakes With Mini Diplomas

Graduation Cupcakes DiplomaRoll up a smallish piece of parchment or regular paper to resemble a diploma. Tie a ribbon around the middle with a short piece of ribbon OR fruit leather (like Fruit Roll-Ups).

Press the “diploma” into the frosting on your cupcake and there you are! Graduation Mini Diploma Cupcakes!

You could also use fondant to make the little diplomas.  Roll some out thinly and cut out small rectangles.  Roll those little rectangles into ‘diplomas’ and place on your cupcake.  Either drizzle some icing across the diploma as in the picture.  The fun thing about using fondant is that you can color it to match their school colors.

Tip: Take the opportunity to write short messages, brief quotes or funny sayings on the paper. Keep it short! This will add a bit of extra interest for everyone!

Tip: You could also use tulle ribbon to make the mini diplomas. Or even white fondant! =)
