This cake was for my sisters graduation. I just recently started making cakes as a hobby and this was my third cake and I was brave and decided to tier it. Her school colors were blue and white and she loves animal print. She really had no idea what the cake was going to look like since it was a surprise. She had seen the cake on PinkCakeBox.com so i based it off of that but changed it to make it my own. I baked all my cakes the day before to properly cool. The first layer was german chocolate. Second was Red Velvet and the third yellow. The following day I iced in the morning then iced again the afternoon to completely harden. I decorated at night since I have 5 children and my 1 year old likes to poke the cakes. I did all the stars and circles and put them aside then placed the fondant. The zebra stripes I didnt do ahead of time because I didnt want to make too many. I used wooden dowls in the fist tier but not on the second I honestly didnt think it needed it. I did place a long dowl through the top to make sure the top didnt fall. Luckily it did not collapse. When I brought the cake to the house the following morning she loved it and so did everyone else. I think it came out pretty good.
After looking all over for some ideas on decorating a cake for Pharmacist graduation cake I decided to create my own.
I made this cake for a family friend who graduated from Pharmacy school and is now a Pharmacist. I made the bottom 18” round with fresh strawberries, kiwis and mangoes and whipped cream. Then I colored the whipped cream pink and covered the top. I added gray boarder on the top and the bottom of the cake and pink pearls.
For the props on the top of the cake I made prescription bottle out of rice krispy treats and covered it with light brown fondant and had a edible image of the bottle cover that I designed to personalize the bottle and made the other piece with rice krispy treats as well and covered it with white fondant and colored it sliver and sprinkled sliver glitter on top.
I used candy to make pills and capsules and used black icing to write on them.

I got this task for a Hat and Scroll Graduation Cake from my child's teacher.
This is my first time I did cake decoration with plastic icing. I learnt a lot from making this one and since then I am very confident to decorate cakes with plastic icing. Few mistakes happened but it was an amazing experience and good lesson. Now I am learning how to make 3D cake decoration.
My first mistake was, I rolled the fondant icing on the display board which was really painful as it was not neat and tidy. It worked eventually.
Second mistake, I made the tassle too early then it was set and dry. It broke as I lifted it, then I knew that I should put it on the hat and let it dry.
I had so much fun making this cake and my child's teacher was very pleased. Since then I got so many orders from the school to make all their celebration cakes or cupcakes.
