I made this graduation cake for the darling daughter of a dear friend who is graduating from high school this year. She is very musical (among her other talents) and wanted a musical-themed cake with flowers.
This is a half-sheet double layer cake (chocolate and vanilla) with a fresh strawberry filling, iced with vanilla-bean cream cheese buttercream The notes are made from melted chocolate piped ahead of time onto waxed paper and added at the end. The graduation cap and scroll are made from homemade marshmallow fondant with royal icing piped on. Some flowers are buttercream and others I cut from fondant.
It was such a pleasure to do this cake for Henriette’s graduation…She is an outstanding girl who is very adventuresome and excels in so many things. We wish her all the best in her coming years of college…Good luck, Henriette!!
