my oldest child is graduating from high school and i want to make his cake extra special! icon_lol.gif i am going to make a 4 tier, stacked cake. a 12",10",8", and 6" with 4 different flavors...chocolate fudge cake w/ chocolate bc, lemon w/ lemon filling, strawberry w/ strawberry filling, and vanilla w/ i don't know. icon_confused.gif i'm kinda stumped there. any ideas?? icon_rolleyes.gif i also don't know how i want to decorate it. i want it to look elegant, but boyish...maybe with roman columns on the bottom...but i don't know what else to do with the rest of the tiers. oh...they'll be a grad cap w/tassel on top. anyone have any ideas??? icon_confused.gificon_confused.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

Vanilla cake with raspberry filling is always one of my favorites, vanilla with coconut is good too.

For the decoration, what about a plaid or checkerboard/diamond pattern done in school colors?

I would do the raspberry with the lemon and put the strawberry with the vanilla! Love those two combos!

For decorations what about alternating the tiers with Diamons and Strips? Elegant , but you can do it in either school colors or his favorite colors.
