Graduation Cupcakes!

June 1, 2009 at 4:06 pm 5 comments

Graduation is just around the corner, and for some, it is right on your doorstep!  What better to celebrate then to bake an easy, fun, and festive batch of cupcakes!  And guess what???  Simplicity is back for spring so don’t break your back making extravagant cupcakes-unless you want to! 


This is a very simple recipe that requires almost no talent in the baking field.  That means no experience is needed!  So get ready, get set, BAKE!


Makes 20-25 cupcakes




  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup butter, softened (leave out at room temperature)
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line muffin cups with muffin papers (make the muffin papers their school colors!) 
  2. Put butter and sugar in mixer and beat until light and fluffy (if you don’t own a mixer, beat by hand-it is harder).  Beat in eggs one at a time.
  3. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl and add it into the original bowl (flour, sugar + egg bowl) alternating with milk.  Beat well and add Vanilla 
  4. Fill up cupcake pans ½-2/3 full and pop into the oven for 20 minutes. 
  5. Let the cupcakes cool in the pans then decorate with the frosting of your choice!

Have fun baking these…it might relieve a little stress from finals!cupcake1

    These look AH-MAZING. I think that I’ve never actually made cupcakes~ always just bought them at a store (took the easier route).
    I as well absolutely can’t cook for my life! But now I feel confident I can, with this somewhat easy recipe=].
    I’m going to totally try to make these this weekend, see if they relieve the stress of finals! Can’t wait!

    YESSS! Baking is a great way to relieve stress for finals! I love sitting down in front of the TV and eating a nice batch of fresh cupcakes! YUM! And best of all, you’ll have an excuse to bake cupcakes…GRADUATION! AHHH! and who knows, maybe you’ll “accidentally” bake a few extras…for yourself

    thank you! I agree with the part about eating the batter, who doesn’t?!!! I personally think the batter is one of the best parts!

    any batter is good. When playing a long polo tournament and then finally coming home, there is nothing i like better than nice cold batter.
