Here s a picture of the three-tiered graduation cake I made for my open house. It was pretty difficult being my first tiered cake and all and learning how to tier the cake from a book, but it never fell over so I think it worked pretty well. The cake was modeled after the invitation cards that I designed. The middle layer is all about me and my life in high school (Dance, piano, music, soccer, NHS....) And on the top of the cake is a road showing that my high school road has ended and my road to college is beginning. All decorations included the graduate is made from fondant and placed on buttercream frosting.
