Graduation cupcakes

I quickly made these graduation cupcakes. ¬†Unfortunately I did not have a lot of¬†time to spend on it so it is a bit thrown together, but I do think it came out nicely. ¬†I really need to find a nice icing recipe, although mine is tasty I don’t find it that easy to squeeze onto…
