Thought I posted this a couple days ago, but never got replies & can't find it, forgive me if it's a duplicate. My friend's daughter is graduating high school. She wants a graduation cake that incorporates her love of competitive swimming and the college she is going to attend. Any design ideas? Cake only needs to feed 25 people.

Since it only needs to feed 25, I would go with a newspaper cake. It can tell what ever story you want, and you could have some props on top. Examples of props could be a swimming medal, a scroll, a grad cap, etc. You get the idea.

How about something with goggles and a swim cap. Put the college colors and logo on the swim cap. Here's a pic that gave me the idea:

Thanks so much for your help! I didn't even think of the swim medal, cap, etc. I may make the entire cake the cap, then place diploma, swim stuff, and Bucknell University around it on a cake board. Originally I planned on using the half ball pan for a smaller cap, any know how it would look if I used a 9" round instead?
