My son is graduating from preschool soon and I wanted to make cute graduation cap cupcakes. The problem is my daughter is allergic to peanuts so I can't use PB cups, does anyone have another way to make the cap w/o using PB cups?

I made some grad cap cupcakes and used a chocolate mold. Look at the black grad cap on my photos in my profile and then go to the More photos - a picture of the cupcakes is there. This was super simple. Just mold the chocolate caps and place on top of frosted cupcakes. Also you can make the hats any color you want.

OHhhhhhhhhhh I was thinking you meant you used a peanut butter cup mold and molded the bottom part of the hat vs. using an actual peanut butter cup.

Those are nice!!

Those are so cute linstead thanks for the idea! I'll see if I can find a mold like that. I'll also look for the carmel cups. Thanks everyone. I miss peanut butter icon_cry.gif
