Melinda wanted a Graduation Cake for her daughter Hollie. She said Hollie liked the Victoria’s Secret pink, sparkly silver which she wanted incorporated into the cake. She decided on a vanilla cake in the shape of an “H” with a graduation cap added as decor.
We baked a 12″ square, and cut out the H”. We covered it in hot pink buttercream and piped a pink bead border on top and bottom. To create the graduation cap, we wrapped a 5.5″ cardboard square with fondant, painted black and added the tassel holder piece on top. To form the tassel, we pushed fondant through my fondant pump to create the thin threads and painted it with silver luster dust. We rolled up white fondant to look like a diploma. We cut out stars from fondant, painted with silver luster dust and topped with silver sugar sparkles. We piped in the lettering and it was complete after 5 hours.
