(Family Features) - Graduation is a milestone. Whether it's making the leap from kindergarten to first grade, or high school to college, graduation is an occasion for celebration, and a party is in order.
The celebration experts from Wilton suggest setting the stage for this rite of passage with highlights of the graduate's educational journey. A display of awards, achievements or recognitions, photos, and other mementos makes perfect party decor.
Be sure to give some thought to the menu...it's an important part of the celebration, too. Serve the grad's favorites, and pay special attention to dessert. These whimsical Tip of the Cap Treats are actually brownies in the shape of a mortarboard cap. Complete with tassels in school colors, they are impressive, and easy, too - sure to garner a grade of A+ from all in attendance. Here's how.
Bake brownies from a mix (or your own recipe) in the unique brownie pop silicone mold to create the base of the cap. Next, pour a coating of light or dark cocoa candy melts over the cooled brownies and attach a piece of square chocolate candy to the brownie to form the flat top. To make the tassels, cut slits at one end of a strip of rolled fondant, and affix to the cap with additional melted candy.
Time to enjoy the party...who knows, the graduate might just give you "extra credit" for this one!
