Feeling lost on your graduation cake? Well, worry not! Here are some cakes for you!
1. Tassel Cake
This graduation cake is all about the tassels! It’s a two-layer cake with the top layer mimicking a graduation cap. Around the top of the bottom layer hangs tassels that look just like the one hanging from the cap. This cake looks primarily made out of fondant so I would get someone else to make this if I were you. A quick check at a local bakery could help you out.
2. Dr. Suess Cake
This cake is super cute and doesn’t exactly say graduation. Maybe you’re celebrating more than one thing! That’s where this cake comes in. This Dr. Suess line “oh the places you’ll go” is a great way to celebrate you and all of your future endeavors. Plus, this cake is colorful just like you!
3. School Colors
If you’re wanting to celebrate both you and your school with graduation cakes, put them together and create a cake from your school colors! My favorite part about this cake is all the frilly fondant sticking out from under the cap. This cake also gives you the perfect place to add your name and your graduation year.
4. Degree Cake
If you’re feeling creative, make graduation cakes themed in your degree. This nursing cake is super cute! You could do airplanes for aviation and a schoolhouse for education. The possibilities are endless and the cake would be catered just to you.
5. Studies Cake
If there’s a cake bakery in your area, see if they can make you this textbook cake. I personally think it’d be super fun to eat all of those horrible textbooks! Nevertheless, this cake reminds you of all the money and time spent studying for your classes in order to get that degree.
6. Rosettes Cake
If you want to be simple and easy, try this rosette cake and use toppers to decorate it. You can buy toppers at any craft store, or even WalMart, around graduation time. The best part about this cake is just imagining how yummy those buttercream roses are!
7. Letter Cake
Make graduations cakes all yours by making it into the shape of your name’s first letter. There are hundreds of tutorials online on how to do this but hopefully, your name is an easy letter like this “E!” Making a graduation cap is as easy as buying one of cutting one out of construction paper. This cake is also very photogenic!
8.Square Fondant Cake
Another fondant cake! This one of square and has some really cute decorations on it. as opposed to the other fondant cake we saw on this list, this one is of a significantly smaller scale. So much smaller in fact, that you could probably tackle it on your own if you’re willing to. From what I’ve heard, fondant is much easier to work with on a small scale.
9. Dreams Cake
This cake is perfect for those who dreamed of going to college their whole life or landed their dream job upon graduation. Either way, this cake gives focus to the actual dream instead of the act of graduation. It is much more interesting and quite frankly, prettier than normal graduation cakes.
10. Decorative Cake
Last but not least, purchase a heavily decorated cake. If you’re wanting something more than just “Congratulations Graduate” written across a plain white cake, this one is for you. Cakes like this can be bought at most bakeries or grocery stores so you won’t have to worry about making all of those swirls perfect.
