The graduation cap and bottom tier was chocolate fudge cake with strawberry buttercream and the hat box tier, New York shopping bag and Coco Chanel Diamonds are Forever purse was white chocolate pound cake with strawberry buttercream. The graduate has a love for fashion, New York, and New Orleans so I incorporated all that into this cake to the best of my ability. Fleur De Paris is an exclusive hat boutique in New Orleans. The emblem on the pink gift box is called a Fleur De Lis, a symbol of New Orleans. The New York shopping bag, Coco Chanel purse and pearls symbolize New York and fashion.
