It's getting about that time of year!
Sure enough. I've got one coming up next week already.
Oh yes! I'm proud of my graduation cakes
They are both girly though. Hopefully next month I will be doing one for a boy. Hope you like 'em!
This is my first for this year.
These cake are amazing! I hope I get the chance to make a cake as good this year. My grad cakes from last year were nothing to brag about. Great job everyone!
Rachel that is so cute!!! Can you give any tips on how to do the cap?
I've only had a couple, but here is one I did for a music major....
The cap on the beer mug cake is actually a cake baked in a bowl. I cut it off level on both sides and propped one side up with cardboard. Then I filled in around the bottom with buttercream to look like foam. The top of the cap is just a black board with a real tassel that I attached the â08 confetti to. I was pressed for time so I didnât get to play around with making everything edible which was a little disappointing, but I thought it turned out pretty nicely in the end.
I love that cake for the music major,that is so cool!!
No graduation cakes, but looking forward to seeing everyone else's. I have two brothers and my hubby who are all in college right now, so Mom and I are throwing an 'end of year' party for them in the near future, now that everyone's done with exams and the boys will be back home for the summer. My thought was a closed-book cake for each of them in their school colors, with the title of their major on it or something similar... Math for my sweetie, Radiography for my youngest brother, and Early Childhood Education for my middle bro.
Can't wait to see what folks come up with!
My twin sisters are graduating high school this year, just thinking should I make a grand cake for the family, or should I stick w/ what I'm good at, which is cookies???
Oh, cakediva.... I LOVE that ! It is sooo darned cute and PERFECT for the ocassion....
I love sweetpea8("s) cake looks like a locale newspaper with your child's picture with edible image (child wearing grad attire, of course). Sooo cute. Sorry I don't know how to attach pictures. Look her up and take a look! It's worth it!
Also I made some fun cupcakes for a friend for graduation. Those are in my pictures.
Here's one I did a couple years ago for a preschool grad...from the wilton yearbook
Here's one (not mine - Kitagrl) but I borrowed the concept and stacked two square cakes offset and put the bear on top with the hats around the squares...can't find the pic anywhere
here are two i did last year when i was VERY new
...tring to figure out what to do for this year, my some graduates from high school and now that i kinda know what i am doing, i want to make it special.
and this one was for engineering but it could be a graduation cake since it is the schools logo
i am trying to post pictures, not links...help anyone??
I just posted this one
it is a simple cake and easy to do... the longest part is letting the mortar board dry. TFL
Fabulous cakes so far!
Here are the two that I made for my daughter's Kindergarten graduation.
The main cake was a off-set square 2-tier cake in buttercream with fondant accents. Each kid had a star with their name on it. The sheet cakes that went with it were also BC with fondant accents. 4 different layers so I got to make 4 different flavours.
Now I have a month to design my son's K graduation cake. I think I'm going with a cupcake tower - a little more kid friendly, even if it will need to serve 100 . . .
these cakes are all wonderful!! They're giving me great ideas. (my dd also graduates from preschool this year)
Here are a few I've done for graduation
This was for a class, they just wanted the school colors
This was for my brother, we celebrated his graduation from college and his daughters baptism the same day. Made this with the 3D bear pan and traveled with both cakes 1 1/2 hours in the heat I'm still shocked they both made the trip
This was for someone here in town, school colors
Wonderful cakes. Looking forward to seeing more. I am busy on one now & will post it when done.
