Nathan graduated from his MBA program on Friday!!

We're all so proud, even if we're bummed that they're moving to AZ as a result of it.

Thanks to my awesome zoom lens, I was able to get some shots of him, even though the set up was AWFUL for families to take pictures. I wish they were a little more in focus, but without a tripod, it was iffy.

Jenny asked me to make cupcakes for the event, and this is what I came up with. I don't know why I had to mull over this for so many days to come up with it, but I did.

It's red velvet cake (because he was graduating from the U), chocolate frosting, and the caps are made from upside down Reeses Peanut Butter cups and Ghiradelli chocolate squares. I piped on red chocolate tassels and stuck a red mini m&m in the middle for the button.

Oh my gosh, I WAS THERE!! My little bro graduated in Marketing. I can't believe I was in the same room as you guys and cutie pie little Nolan and I had no idea! *smacking head on desk* It would have been so much fun to come visit with you. Well, POOP.

Oh, and those cupcakes are SOOOO cute! Seriously. I am in awe of their adorable-ness and your creativity!

very cute. I made something similar but used a cut fruit roll up for the tassel to make it longer. I put mine on a stick lollipop style. I like them on the cupcake.
