Check out the video to see how these quickly come together!

I used the Chefmaster liqua-gel colors to make this set. You'll probably want to customize your school colors, but here's a list of what I used: navy blue, white, golden yellow (tassle), and black. See the full collection of liqua-gel colors - click here.

These cookies are not highly detailed, making them great for a beginner. The flat basketweave tips make these cookies super quick. The narrow flat tip is Wilton #301.

The wide tip used on the diploma ribbon is Wilton #44.

I love #44 and use it all the time! Can you spot where I used it in all these projects? Check out the full blog post about tip #44 - CLICK HERE
