Cupcakes for Max

We made these for our friend Danell and baby Max, whose baby blessing we were celebrating. We used the chocolate and cream cheese frosting which were colored to match the paper on the tower (which is scrapbook paper.) The letters M A X were done with chocolate. I melted Wilton chocolate melts in a squeeze bottle and then drew letters onto wax paper, let them dry, peeled them off, and placed them carefully on the frosted cupcakes.

Graduation cupcakes

Patti and I made these for her twin's preschool graduation.  We baked chocolate cupcakes and used the cream cheese frosting recipe.  We made the diplomas out of parchment paper.  The graduation hats had a Reeses peanut butter cup on the bottom with a Ghirardelli square for the top of the hat with a M&M and a pull a part licorice for the tassel.  I can't wait to make these for my husband's school graduation using the school colors.
