I have done a few grad cakes in my time... BUT... I have always done a light cap for the girls and dark caps for the boys... does anybody do this or do you just use the dark colors for each? Just seems like it should be how it is during their graduation... Just a thought..
Usually the mom who is ordering the cake tells me what color they want on it. Personally, I dont' see that it's any big deal what color it is .... but I guess there are some people who would live-or-die by the color of it. I say just ask 'em if they have a preference.
See they never tell me.. They just say .. make it a graduation cake LOL... I just add the cap.. but I would of made a darker color if I would of known not to worry about it.. I guess next time I should ask
It seems like that's how it should be, but now, each school has their colors. So I would always ask if I were you! I know even for my daughters grad party it was important to have the school colors on everything. Just my opinion.
Oh yes Vicky.. I know about doing it with the school colors.. but my question was the light color for the girls caps and the dark for the boys
I don't know about your area but around us they don't do colors based on gender, they use school colors mostly. Some schools do have a different color for honors students, my husband's high school was like that, then it's usually the other school color.
I'd ask the parents what colors if you're wondering.
