Goody for the Grad! Cupcakes is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did this one a litte differently but it worked out great! Made it out of rice cereal treats so I had to use a piece of cardboard to support the top. Covered in a thin layer of marshmallow fondant and used red (my school color) spray to coat it. I also used a Twizzler Pull & Peel for the tassle & that was perfect

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Definitely using this for my granddaughters high school grad party. She loves cupcakes and this looks really easy, unique and I know she will love it. Besides no cake to cut and serve. Everyone gets a cupcake hat. How cute is that
