Cool Homemade Diploma Graduation Cake
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.
