Homemade Graduation Cake

This Graduation cake was made for a family members high school graduation party. It is a white cake from a cake mix. It is 12 by 18. It is iced in butter cream icing. The middle door of the cake is a piece of cardboard covered in tin foil and iced to match the rest of the cake. It is held open by two dowel rods.

The girl on the cake was my first attempt at frozen buttercream transfer. It is much easier and less stressful than drawing on the cake because if you mess up you can just wipe it off and start over. The directions for frozen buttercream transfer can be found online. Also, after I took this picture I bought a bottle of multi color candy confetti to add some color to this cake. The extra color really helped the look of the cake.

It is done in the girls school colors.

I made this graduation cake in an 11 x 15 pan by Wilton. I used 2 white cake mixes which filled the pan well. After cooling, I cut a 3 inch strip off the top. Using that strip, I cut it into thirds. I placed one square on each corner- top left and bottom right.

I used a custard cup to trace and trim the cake into the rounded corners. I frosted the cake with buttercream icing. I printed the font off the computer. I traced this onto transparency paper. I reversed it and traced the lettering with black frosting gel. I then used this to "stamp" the image into the cake. This method works quite well!

I traced over the stamped lettering with black icing. I did the same stamp technique for the U of H symbol which I got off the Internet and the name Sam.

The bottom layer of the graduation cake is a half sheet cake that I iced in white. I made the scrolls out of fondant and gumpaste and painted the ribbon black. I used a pampered chef bowl to make the cap. I covered it in fondant and hand painted with food coloring the red so that it would match the school colors better.

The mortar is a piece of corplast covered in fondant and hand painted. I used the real tassel and attached it with the gumpaste on top. The letters were all cut from gumpaste and painted a darker black with food coloring.

This is a graduation cake I made for a co-worker. The colors of the cap and gown were going to be white, so he wanted mostly white, but the school colors also included silver and blue.

I actually made two 8" inch double-layer cakes (one chocolate, one yellow), and put them side by side and then covered with fondant. He wanted some of each flavor and I thought that was an easy way to do it.

The graduation cap is yellow cake as well.

I was asked to make a graduation cake using Perry the Platypus from the Disney show Phineas and Ferb. I found pictures on the internet and enlarged them. I rolled out fondant in the appropriate colors and used the pictures as templates.

I replaced Perry's fedora with a graduation cap and placed a rolled piece of fondant in his hand as a diploma. I placed the fondant characters on a 11x15 yellow cake with buttercream icing.

I made a large "history" book for this Graduation Cake because grade 12 is now history!

The cake was vanilla and the graduation cap was chocolate. The top of the cap is cardboard for stability and the result looks pretty good, I think.

My niece graduated from kinder. I've been making family cakes for years, precious moments was my inspiration.

This Homemade Graduation Cake was chocolate with fondant. It was 3D. I made the cap, gown and flowers first then planted them on the cake itself.
