My niece graduate on my June 2nd and I made her graduation cake for her. I was pretty excited to do it for her and had this great idea of doing a 3 layer cake. I googled some graduation cakes while I was Idaho and found the one you see below but it did have a third layer, I just did not have time to do it:(I wanted a graduation cap on top, but I started about 90 minutes to late in the AM to get it done. Oh well! I think it turned out pretty good for my 5th cake!
Here it is!
Her school colors were red and black and I really wanted a black hat with a red tassel on top but oh well right?! I think it still turned out pretty good.
It was a chocolate cake with homemade chocolate butter cream in the layers with FRESH strawberries. My niece loves strawberries and chocolate so it was perfect.
I covered a piece of plywood with white fondant and cut out the stars and letters with fondant I had left over. This way it was heavy enough to hold the cake and move the 20 minutes in between houses. I did not make it at her house so I had to deliver it.
Next graduation cake I do will have the hat on top! I had the rice krispie treats to mold it, well the ingredient anyway! Hope my other nieces enjoy the rice krispie treats I left in Idaho!
