Coolest BioMed Graduation Cake

I had a friend contact me one day. She said a friend of hers daughter was graduating from High School and was needing a two tiered red velvet  cake. I accepted the challenge and asked her to email me things that they wanted on the cake. I made the top tier white and the bottom blue for her High School colors.  I made marshmallow fondant which is completely yummy. It goes good with the buttercream frosting I made that went along well with the red velvet cake I made from scratch.  I tinted the fondant royal blue, red, orange and a lighter blue with the Americolor Gel. Simply love the bright colors it makes.

I made the pill bottle and the top the night before so that it would have time to dry. I made fondant pills and decided to have them spill out of the bottle down to the bottom tier.  The top tier she wanted The Star of Life outlined with a white border which features The Rod of Asclepius in the center. She also asked that I add the heartbeat, so I thought why not add a few hearts in between the beat.  I also added the white and blue twisted rope made from fondant to bring the two tiers together.

The bottom tier which I did a royal blue she wanted the RLT school logo. I added the little diplomas around the bottom to represent her Graduation.  I made the glove as lighter blue and wanted it to drape down from the top to the bottom tier.  All in all this cake was a great accomplishment for me. I have never done such detail on a cake before and I am very proud of myself.

The hardest part of this cake for me was making the pill bottle. I had to make it a couple of times because it kept collapsing. I finally got it to hold its shape and was finally able to lay it on its side.  I have taught my self everything I know. I learn from my mistakes and  I have come a long way.  The best part of making this cake was seeing there faces when I delivered it.  It was PRICELESS…
