This wonderful family has three daughters all graduating from different schools on the same day! One from elementary, one from middle, &one from high school. My client asked for a cake that would represent all 3 girls, their schools, & their interests, but no matter how much I pondered it, I just couldn’t figure out how to get all that on one cake without it looking jumbled & overdone. Then I had the idea to create a ‘yearbook’ for each girl, themed to her school & interests. The middle book features one of Emily’s ORIGINAL drawings, which I printed in an edible image for the cake. I had a fit when I saw it! I love dragons!
The red book is strawberry cake with strawberry white chocolate buttercream filling & dark chocolate ganache. The black cake is a gluten free Australian Chocolate Mud with Oreo white chocolate buttercream filling & dark chocolate ganache. The blue cake is a gluten free White Chocolate Mud cake with lemon curd buttercream filling & white chocolate ganache. Every single thing on the board is edible with the exception of the ribbon tied around the diploma.
I so enjoyed creating this cake, & I think I am most proud of getting my tassel to drape like a real one. Haha! I also loved the message i found online. Every single graduation cake says ’congratulations, & I wanted something different, & that would work for all three girls.
Cakes ROCK!!! Christy Seguin, Austin, TX
