My intentions of this blog are to of course showcase my talents but also to encourage others to bake! I want to show people that you do not have to attend a culinary arts school (if you do, that is obviously great!) to be successful in the baking business. You do not need super expensive equipment or a large oven to get wonderful and professional looking results. I have been in this business for a few years and I have learned so much without taking one class! And I want to share with you what I have learned.

Mortar Board Graduation Cake

The month of June equals Graduation season so you know that I would be making at least one cake/batch of cupcakes. I have one member of my family who is a senior of the Class of 2013. He graduated from the same high school that I went to so I definitely wanted to make him a cake. Here is what I came up with!
I have always been amazed at how people made Graduation hat cakes and I just had to figure it out for myself so, I turned to trusty youtube.com. And you won't believe how simple it was!! The base of the hat is made from half a ball cake pan covered in fondant. And the top of the hat is a small piece of cardboard covered in fondant. That wasn't enough cake for my family (I knew that in advance) so I had to set that on top of an 8 inch round cake. The cake is decorated in Garnet/Maroon icing because our school colors are Maroon & Gray/Steel & Garnet. The cake says "Congrats Kyree" "2013" and "Girard College" (the name of the school).
