Ingredients

  • boxed cake mix
  • canned frosting
  • graham crackers
  • licorice strings
  • food coloring

Preparation

Prepare the 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 "crummie" - soften frosting in microwave if needed.

Frost the graham 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.
