I know many graduations are already over, but maybe not all, so I thought I would share the graduation cap ideas two of my granddaughters and one of their friends help me put together. There were lots of great comments at the open house and I will definitely make them again.

I got the idea here from Taste of Home website....
CANDY GRADUATION CAPS
24 miniature peanut butter cups
1 tube (6 ounces) decorating frosting in color of your choice
24 After Eight thin mints
(I couldn't find them so I used Ghiradelli choco squares, individually wrapped)
24 milk chocolate M&M's in color of your choice or 24 semisweet chocolate chips
Remove paper liners from peanut butter cups; place upside down on waxed paper. Place a small amount of frosting on each peanut butter cup; center a mint on each. Using frosting, make a loop for each cap's tassel. Place an M & M on top of each.
Yield: 2 dozen.
I also made jello pinwheel flowers using the school colors of the gal graduating. She was very pleased.
I had a good laugh because more often than not, folks think they're too pretty to eat and they are left untouched. Not this time - they were gone fast. I was glad too.
They're much easier than they look. You dissolve a pkg. of jello in a little bit of water...melt marshmallows in it. When it sets, the layers separate...cut into strips and roll up into flowers. The green jello I did free hand....for specific directions and measurements, check out my post here.
BEST WISHES TO ALL THOSE GRADUATING THIS YEAR!
