It’s almost graduation season, so start planning those parties! I really can’t believe how huge graduation parties are here in Ohio…much bigger than celebrations where I grew up.
These are some examples of half-sheet cakes that are a good party-size and can serve a bunch when made with 2 layers.
These 2 graduation cakes I did for a Poland Seminary High School graduate last year who was going to Ohio State in the fall.
This Cardinal Mooney cake I did a few years ago (before I discovered how cutting letters out of fondant is much cleaner … and straighter :)). The graduate was going to the University of Dayton…
These are full sheet cakes, which I don’t make often as they are difficult to manage in my regular-sized fridge. I love this black and yellow theme with swirls and stars. It really says “Let’s CELEBRATE…you’ve done it!!”
For this one I made a 3-d mortar board and decorated it with stars, sprinkles and fondant twists. Here’s the post that describes it in more detail.
This cake is for a smaller celebration…followed by a group of specialty cakes.
And you always need cookies, right?
