My Son's Graduation Cake
I finally finished Elisabeth, Andrew's friend, and my son, Andrew's graduation cake for their party on Saturday. I can't believe I have another 'baby' finished with homeschooling!!!
I taught Elisabeth how to ice and decorate a cake with the Wilton method and she picked it up really fast. She did the stars and the squiggles on the top cake (her idea) and the side and back border. I made the squiggles with a cake comb. This is the first time in years that I have used this tool. This is a two layer 11 x 15 cake with a two layer 9 x 13 cake on top. It's the first time I ever used dowels rods and a second cake board.
Rebekah made the graduation cap and braided gold embroidery thread to put on cap. I baked a base for the grad cap of chocolate cake in a large custard cup. We had a really fun time deciding how to put this together.
