Graduation cake just picked up-vanilla cake chocolate mousse filling

Lurker here! For once I can say I am working on something. Just a small red velvet graduation cake. Bake tonight-decorate tomorrow-pick up Sunday. That gypsy show is fascinating! The gowns are amazing even for a first communion. it's also pretty sad that the wedding is the highlight of the girls life-all downhill after that.
