This Homemade Graduation Cake was my absolute first fondant cake. It was my daughter’s grade 8 graduation and I decided to give a shot (the decision came shortly after we tried to order a fondant cake for my niece on short notice -5 days) and all bakeries told us was they need at least 1 week for fondant).

This is a red velvet cake with butter cream topped with rolled fondant. Absolutely amazing and was a great hit. I rolled the fondant very thin, everyone ate it! I used things from the house like a bowl for the cap with some cardboard. The lettering I gotta work on.
