University of Tennessee Graduation Party Cupcakes & Free Printable

Over the weekend I had to pleasure of making cupcakes and a dessert for a friend's
party she was hosting for her daughter's high school graduation.

Morgan will be attending the University of Tennessee this fall, so the party theme was
orange and white for the Tennessee Volunteers.  I made red velvet cupcakes with cream
cheese frosting and chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream.  Keeping with the party
theme I decorated the cupcakes with Tennessee logo toppers and washi tape flags.

I decorated some of the cupcakes with orange sprinkles too.
Sprinkles make everything cuter!

Morgan looked beautiful and she had a great time at her party.  I loved the painted pallet
that held all of her school photos over the years. Such a great idea!

I also made Strawberry Punch Bowl cake for the graduation party - it's always a winner!

Cupcakes make any occasion more special and I was so happy to help with Morgan's
graduation party. Congratulations Morgan!  Good luck at UT this fall!

Cream Cheese Frosting

2 packages cream cheese
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperate
2 lbs. confectioners sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 T heavy cream

In the bowl of a stand mixer add cream cheese and butter.  Beat on medium speed
for about 2 minutes.  Slowly add half of the confectioners sugar and mix for another
2 minutes or until creamy.  Add remaining confectioners sugar, vanilla and heavy cream
and mix 2 minutes more.  Use immediately or store in the fridge up to 7-10 days.

Note - I used a Wilton 1M tip to frost the cupcakes.

  1. I am also planning a small graduation party for my son and that’s why was searching for some ideas. I must say your ideas have really helped me to plan a successful party as I had booked one of best local venues in DC for the party.
