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

Got this idea from the galleries. 12 inch square bottom used 1/2 the sports ball for the cap. The top of the cap is a peice of cardboard covered in frosting. I made the tassel out of cross stich thread. Choc. cake, with BC frosting.

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 one is pretty simple, the cake is all iced in butter cream, the tassel on the hat was made using the Wilton tip I use to make grass and fur.  the numbers are cut out of fondant.

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.

1/2 sheet and double layer 6" round all french vanilla cake torted with fresh strawberries and strawberry glaze, all buttercream icing except the top of the graduation hat and diploma that is made with MMF (my fist try at MMF) and the tassel is made from cross stitching thread. This cake design was inspired from many graduation photos here on CC so thank you to all for the great ideas!

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.

fondant covered "books" with a fondant covered cap and eagle. I didn't get the books as perfect as I wanted them and wish I had an airbrush to paint on the writing. I barely got the top of the grad cap dry in time...had to put it in the food dehydrator over night. Nothing like waiting till the last minute to make fondant decorations that need to dry:)

I made this for my co workers daughter. Her school colors were blue and white. I used half of the ball mold and covered with MMF. This was my second time with MMF, I'm SLOWLY getting better. I was very pleased with the result. Thanks for looking.

The book, cap, and diploma are made of MMF. The book cover is fondant and pages are vanilla buttercream. The "cake" is 2 layers of peanut butter cookie with a peanut butter filling in between. I should've used a lighter background for the picture - it's really hard to see the MMF hat!
