Take Your Favorite Pinwheel Recipe and turn it into a Diploma with this SIMPLE but Fantastic Idea my husband came up with before the party!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ALL ingredients, except tortillas, together to make filling. OR USE YOUR FAVORITE Pinwheel filling recipe.
  2. Spread desired amount of filling onto each tortilla, just as if you were making pinwheels.
  3. Roll Up just as if you were making a pinwheel ~ DO NOT CUT.
  4. Tie a 6-8 inch length of colored ribbon ( that matches your graduates color scheme ) around the middle of the rolled up tortilla to look like a diploma !
  5. This is SO easy and EVERYONE will love them! Had one guest tell me she was totally stealing the idea when her daughter graduates!
  6. Time Stated is Approximate ~ Depends on How many you make and how fast you can roll and tie!

These are great! I made these for my nephew's highschool graduation party a few weeks ago and these were a total hit. So easy too!

This was soooooo cute! Used a mexican pinwheel recipe (Mexican Pinwheels by Carla-very good!), with ingredients chopped very small. Wrapped them in half a fajita tortilla (trimming the pointed sides off), getting two "diploma" rolls per tortilla. Tied them with blue ribbon and set them on a plate, looking like diplomas getting ready to be handed out! They're about a two bite size, and the ribbons are double-knot tied on, though they are loose enough to be rolled off after the first bite. Thank you so much for the wonderful idea!
