Hi everyone..I hope I'm posting this in the right section.
I have decided to make a graduation cake for my daughters Kindergarten class. What I've done is make 19 hand prints out of mmf (about 2" big..each hand) and am going to put each child names on them including the teachers. My original thought was to make the hands 'leaves' falling off a tree but have since realized that this will mean a huge cake. I am only using a 9 x13 pan. So..now what should I do? I thought of doing possibly a chalkboard..but I'm not sure how to make the chalkboard colour and wanted to see what other ideas were out there.
Do the hands as a boarder around the cake. Or make cupcakes instead so each child can have a cake with his or her name on it.
Thanks! Those are both excellent ideas!
The cupcakes maybe the way to go...
Cupcakes were my thought too.
I thought of cupcakes too. 5/6 year olds LOVE cupcakes and personalized ones? How cool would that be for them??
Hmmm..guess cupcakes is the consensus then.. . Now what would be the best way to decorate them? Use a 1m tip and put the hand on top?
1M tip would be pretty. Also, most little kids like chaos, so maybe you could do pull out stars in a color that contrasts the color of the handprints.
The handprints are in a neutral colour and I'm putting their names on them in pink or blue (when they dont keep breaking on me... ) Because they are neutral I didnt know whether to keep the icing white with sprinkles or tint the icing..
I think a 1M tip swirl would be easy and look great with the handprints. What about white icing? I was going to say primary color jimmies/sprinkles but if you are doing the names in blue/pink...maybe sprinkles in blue or pink to match?
