Whether someone you love is graduating from high school, college, or medical school, it is definitely a time for celebration. Often, people celebrate such a graduation with a cookout or a party. A cake is an important part of this celebration, much like a wedding or a birthday.
Graduating from any school is a milestone in someone’s life, so look for graduation cake ideas that will be the hallmark of this event. You can create your own cake by making several large square sheet cakes and then icing them to look like books. Write subject names such as math or science on the spine of the book in icing for a cute schoolbook look. Then just stack them up as if they are piled on a library shelf. Another one of many graduation cake ideas is to make a cake using a cake pan shaped like a person and then decorate it with a cap and gown to look like a brand new, smiling graduate.
If you want to make your cake even more personal, there are services available that can actually screen print a person’s face onto a cake from a photo. Just bring in your loved one’s graduation photo to a bakery that performs this service and they will copy it onto the cake. To complete the graduation cake, write a sentiment such as “Congratulations to our new Graduate” or something similar in icing, or include their name for an added touch.
A beautiful graduation cake will be one of the many cherished memories from this special event. For more graduation cake inspiration, tap into resources such as cookbooks and the Internet. You can also ask others who have thrown graduation parties for some more insight. No matter which cake you choose, it will surely be the hit of the party and provide a nice backdrop to the proud graduate’s accomplishments.
