How to Make Graduation Cap Cupcakes on a Budget

When I was a kid, my mom always celebrated our milestones with these adorable graduation cap cupcakes, that can easily be made for just a few dollars.

You will need:
  • Chocolate boxed cake mix
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Red licorice whips
  • Colorful sprinkles
  • Graham crackers
  1. Bake the cupcakes according to the box instructions. 
  2. Once cooled, peel off the cupcake papers and place upside down.
  3. Frost each cupcake and graham cracker with the chocolate.
  4. Place the graham cracker onto the cupcake and add the licorice whip as a tassel.
  5. Dust with the sprinkles to represent confetti.
Here is another fun option:

These celebratory graduation cap cupcakes can be made to honor graduates from preschool to med-school and most of the ingredients can be purchase at Aldi or your local dollar store for cheap!
