I am very new to cake decorating.My son asked me to make his cake for graduation ugh Im nervous!I thought it would be easier to make individual cakes than to make a large one! so how far ahead can I make them if im filling some with strawberries and cream filling?what is an easy way to make little caps and scrolls?Some are going to be just iced in butter cream with fondant accents.Some covered in fondant and they will be square I think.

the diploma, can be gumpaste and just roll it up and I painted the edges gold. You can also use fondant, but it wont get stiff unless you add tylose.
the cap..you can simply cut a square of cardboard and cover it with fondant and tassels and for under the cardboard you can use a cupcake cover it with bc and then fondant. I have pics on my page. hth
