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).
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!
