Book cake with diploma made from MMF and an edible image.  I got the idea from this site!  The diploma and book pages are trimmed in gold lusterdust.  I realized after the customer had the cake that I forgot to add the red ribbon!  darn!

This cake was created for 2 Special Ed students.  They do not get to go through the regular ceremonies as for some, the crowd may be overwhelming--these are severely special ed kids.  The diplomas are edible images on fondant.  School colors are black and orange but did not want to make black frosting so I sprinkled with black sugar.

Cake for the two graduates at our church. The diploma's and cap are just puffy stickers. I filled a half sheet pan half full with yellow butter and baked. Then I filled it half full of chocolate and baked. I put the two together with a strawberry buttercream, made from the juice of frozen strawberries. The rest is regular buttercream.

A graduation cake for a school whose colors are black, orange and white.  They wanted chocolate icing and said I could use that instead of black (thank goodness!).  The emblem is a FBCT, diploma is MMF, cap is the top of a jumbo cupcake covered with MMF.  Mortar is a piece of cardboard wrapped with MMF and the tassel is MMF pushed through a garlic press!  I was really happy with this one except for the writing.

This cake has the same yearbook base from my previous post. This cake was for my husbands cousin who will be studying nursing. She wanted a cake with graduation stuff (cap, tassle,diploma), so here it is. Cap has iced cardboard top (after my chocolate one broke) Nursing cap is fondant with kandy klay stripe. Logo was drawn on rice paper with edible markers as were the numbers (2006) on the yearbook. Diploma is fondant under rice paper. Ribbon is regualr ribbon

Iced in BC. The cap, diploma, CHS and 2006 in fondant. I did a reverse transfer on my computer for the writing, taped wax paper over that and traced with the #3 tip. Then I put it in the freezer and once frozen, I rubbed it into the cake. I had to put it back in the freezer to get the wax paper off but the writing looks like I iced it in.

This is my second "diploma" cake.  I used the book pan, an edible image pasted on MMF with gel for the diploma, and gold dust on the "pages".

I made this cake for my cousin's graduation from Illinois State University.  It was a three-layer butter cake with lemon curd and raspberry filling.  They wanted something pretty, but different from the typical graduation sheet cake.  While my techniques are amateur at best, this cake was of my own design.

Thanks to TamiAZ for the inspiration for this cake!  It is a white cake with almond buttercream filling and icing.  The cap is a mini-wonder mold covered in black fondant, cardboard top covered in fondant, and fondant tassle.  The diploma is rice paper laid on a fondant base, and I used Americolor pens for the writing. The small cake is quilted with an impression mat, and the bottom has black and gold fondant stripes.  I really wanted an edible image for the diploma but couldn't find anyone to print one.

The only thing this graduate specifically requested was colorful flowers, chocolate cake, and BC frosting.  The diploma is rice paper on fondant, I used Americolor's pens for the writing (wish I had had an edible image).  She loved the cake!

I used another pic from this site and figured out how to do it myself.  This is a carrot cake with buttercream frosting.  The cap is a half-round covered in fondant.  The top of the cap is a cut piece of cardboard with fondant as well.  The flower is fondant on a wire dusted with luster dust and the diploma is rice paper with edible food writers.

I borrowed the idea for this grad cake from TamiAZ.  The tiers are 8" and 10".  The top cake is chocolate fudge cake with whipped mocha filling.  The bottom tier is french vanilla with strawberry cream cheese filling.  The whole cake is iced in cream cheese frosting and the decorations are all fondant.

thank GOD for MMF! as it dried it cracked on the edges like parchment! What I did not like was the black gel for writing- it comes out all globby. Chocolate BC on hat and chocolate MMF laid on cardboard for the top. cap tassle was originally red and white 'strings' of MMF but I had to nuke it for like ONE Second to soften a bit to fix and well guess what totally melted :)) so I used red BC last minute, which of course wouldnt hang down without breaking (reason it's so short lol)

My nephew asked for a "white cake with a skateboard on it" for his graduation cake. I made this sidewalk with ramp and chocolate skateboard for him.  The ramp is a dummy covered in fondant.  The sidewalk top is fondant and the diploma and flags are gumpaste.  The skateboard is ENTIRELY edible--made of chocolate with pretzel rod axels.  The only inedible items on the cake are the necklace on the skateboard and the wooden dowels holding the flags.

This cake is iced with BC icing. The scroll was created by laying fondant on the cake leaving enough at each end to roll up giving it the scroll/diploma effect!  VERY EASY!!!

The book is an 11"x15" Chocolate Cake with Bavarian Cream Filling covered in buttercream then MMF.  The base of the graduation cap is marble cake with buttercream then MMF.  I tried to get the book to have an old world feel about it, but I think it just turned out looking old!  LOL!  All decorations are made of MMF fondant with luster dust highlights.

Last minute Graduation cake order!  Phew!  It's amazing what you can do in three hours!!!  I went along the same line as my Grad Book Cake but a bit more simplified.  The boy that graduated is going to be studying to be a Construction General Contractor, so that's why I made all the tools.  Cake is a 1/4 marble sheet cake with buttercream frosting and base of grad cap is chocolate covered in buttercream then MMF.  All decorations are made of MMF.

Here are the cap and diploma cookies made for son's graduation party.  Ran out of time and would rather have filled in the designs, but this was all I had time to do.  No-fail sugar cookies and royal icing.

Buttercream cake with fondant covered cardboard hat and fondant diploma. This was my first try at a cake this elaborate and I was not happy with how it turned out, but the picture looks pretty good. (You can't see all the flaws!!) Thanks to boween for the idea.

This was my first cake of this size and my first graduation cake.  I see the mistakes I made and I will know what to do and what NOT to do next time! It's a homemade chocolate cake with BC icing.  A lot of things went wrong along the way and yet the cake came out perfect in spite of it all. My icing techniques need work.
