Back-To-School Ruler Cupcakes

Back-To-School Ruler Cupcakes

Kick off a new school year with these easy to make Back-To-School Ruler Cupcakes! 

Another day, another school year.

I've admittedly been counting down the days until the beginning of the school year. Pre-kid me never really understood why moms feared the start of summer. Post-kid me knows all to well the reality of summer break when you're a mom.

But I digress.

To mark the beginning of a new school year, I've used my last bit of creative burst to whip up these adorable Back-To-School Ruler Cupcakes. Like them? Check out the instructions below.


1 box of white or yellow cake mix, any brand + box ingredients
White frosting
24 Vanilla sugar wafers
Chocolate Frosting
Wilton size 2 round frosting tip
Disposable piping bag
White cupcake liners


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line (2) 12 count muffin tins with cupcake liners and prepare the cupcake batter according to the package directions. Next, fill the muffin wells 1/2 way with cupcake batter and bake 18-20 minutes.

After 18 minutes remove the cupcakes from the oven and insert a toothpick into the cupcakes. If the toothpick comes out clean, the cupcakes are done. Once they've passed the toothpick test, let them cool.

Once cool, generously frost each cupcake with white frosting and set aside. Then attach the small round frosting tip and fill the disposable piping bag with chocolate frosting. Gently squeeze the frosting from the piping bag making ruler marks on each vanilla wafer. Try to be as steady as possible when applying the lines, otherwise they'll come out looking a bit odd. I found it easier to brace my hand on the countertop and use my other hand to steady my wrist.

Then place the wafer on top of the cupcake and repeat with all cupcakes. Finally, step back and admire your handiwork and enjoy with a smile.

You can either send these adorable cupcakes to school with your sweeties for their teachers to enjoy, or you can enjoy them in the comfort of your home. Either way, these cupcakes are so simple every member of the family can pitch in and help!
