Graduation Cap ConGRADs Class of 2020!
Class of 2020, this one’s for you! I know graduation isn’t the same this year but that doesn’t mean it can’t be sweet. This cake is great for beginners and the perfect cake to celebrate anyone missing out on their graduation ceremony this year!
This graduation cap is definitely worth celebrating because of all the delicious flavors! I started with 4lbs of my Ultimate Vanilla Cake dyed a bright yellow and soaked the layers in lemon simple syrup then stacked them up with my classic Italian meringue buttercream, rich cream cheese frosting, and lemon curd. I draped the entire cake with a dusty blue fondant and topped it off with a cake board covered in the same blue. The tassel is definitely worth the hassle so I used a clay extruder to create thin yellow fondant cords and completed them with a gold 2020 detail!
