Graduation is a big day and should be celebrated accordingly. Whether it’s finishing high school or college, completing a stage of education is a major accomplishment that deserves some cake. Take a look at how some of Cake Central’s members have honored the occasion with some of the most popular graduation cakes.
This was the graduation cake I had today. School colors were green and white. Client was shades of green with polka dots and accent of pink. I made the pearl curls with fondant on floral wires. The graduation cap & tassels were made from fondant also. Flavors were all Swedish butter cake; top 2 tiers were chocolate IMBC filling and bottom was strawberry IMBC filling. Served 50.

I made this for my youngest daughters lifelong friends graduation from college (they have been friends since they were 18 months). After graduation she is going to work in Cancun
One of my clients asked me to create a Graduation cake for her sister. I used the print from the invite to create the print on this cake. I covered it in golden yellow fondant, then used royal icing for the pattern. Since the recipient is a cool young girl, I wanted to do something different….so I used fabric flowers that are very popular right now to embellish the cake with. Then I created the topper out of chocolate and used an edible image on it. I then added little clusters of silver dragees. One of my all time favorites. I’d love to do this as a wedding cake, since this color combo is so “in” right now!

This was a cake I made for the Police Dept. Burglary Unit in Killeen TX. I made a very similar cake earlier in the week for a police academy graduate. Anyhow the story behind this cake: someone broke into our church and stole some of our music equipment (who DOES that right?) Anyway, the detectives in the burglary unit did not sleep until they found the perpetrators. So, we just wanted to thank them for all their hard work. ) This was about 60 servings of cake and the cup and “donut” are actually rice krispie treats. All edible.
Hi sugar friends!This is one of my son’s grad cakes….. I was beaming with pride the way they turned out! I had 9 hrs. into the shoes along…. I’ll post the varsity jacket next. Jennifer Dontz – traveling teacher
Three tier white cake with chocolate/vanilla Italian meringue buttercream and bittersweet/white chocolate ganache. First time using ganache – I’m a convert! The top of the grad cap is fondant-covered board. I cut out the USC letters by hand and SO pleased with the results. Took me hours!
Grad cake for a dear friends daughter. Top layer is carrot cake with barvarian cream filling and coconut BC, bottom layer is butter cake with raspberry cream filling and vanilla BC. Accents are fondant and design inspired by many I’ve seen here-particularly one by TamiAZ. Thanks for peeking!
This is a 6″ cake stacked on a 1/4 sheet. The top is a styrofoam sheet iced. Fondant tassle & Parchment diploma. Everything else is buttercream and airbrush.
Made this for a college grad who’s favorite thing in the world is his iPhone. The apps are are a combination of the standard apps found on all iPhones and some of the Graduate’s favorite things.
Book cake I made for my brother’s law school graduation. He and several friends hosted a party together which is why there is a generic “Congrats Grads” message. I thought six names would be too many. The names of the books are classes they all took, and the emblem on top is the law school’s logo. I was going to do a grad cap, but they wear berets and that just seemed to complicated. I also meant to make a little diploma, but just forgot to. Oh well, everyone loved it anyways!Thanks so much to all of the members here who offered inspirations, tips and advice!
