Graduation Cupcakes

boxed chocolate cake mix
canned chocolate frosting
chocolate graham crackers
licorice strings
food coloring Bake cupcakes according to box directions. (No cupcake wrappers
needed, but grease and flour the muffin tins.) Remove cupcakes from oven and
let cool completely. Then remove from the tins. Turn each cake upside down on
a foil-lined cookie sheet. Color frosting with food coloring, usually the

school colors. Spread frosting on the cupcake sides and some on top, careful, it
might get "crummy"; Frost the gram cracker and stick on top of the cupcake. The
entire masterpiece should now be entirely frosted. Tie licorice strings into
tassels and use frosting to attach to the caps.
