For this homemade kindergarten graduation cake I started with a 9×9 cake pan and a small glass bowl pan. I used a yellow butter cake recipe. I then used fondant tinted to make the graduate, diploma and to cover the cap. The top of the cap is actually a piece of cardboard. The bottom of the cap is the bowl cake covered in fondant glued together with buttercream.
The cake kindergarten graduation cake is frosted with buttercream frosting and I used a shell border to finish it off. I would say the little graduate was the hardest part of the cake.
