Hi guys! The graduation season is just around the corner. It’s such an exciting time for all students graduating from high school, college, and higher education. I thought I’d put together some graduation cakes for inspiration for your college or high school grad or an order for a graduation party.
My Graduation Custom Cakes
Congrats, You Did It Cake
I did this order for a high school graduation party. The customer wanted the cake to match the school colors (purple, yellow, and gold). I used Wilton Fondant Letter Cutters for the letters. I handpainted the drip with edible luster gold mixed with some vodka. I topped the cake off with Fancy Sprinkles Filthy Rich Sugar (CAKEINSPO15 for a sweet discount!)
Tiered Graduation Cake
This cake was inspired by a cake that the customer saw on Wilton’s website. I changed the colors to fit the school colors. The top tier is a 4-inch cake, and I added a fondant block to make it into a graduation cap. I also used the same Wilton fondant letter cutters for the letters.
Texas A&M Letter Cake
This was for a birthday, but this is a perfect cake for graduations using the grad’s first initial and school colors! I used Sweet Stamp Embossing Set in Elegant for the name. I purchased the Texas A&M cookie cutter at a local baking store but you can find the same one on Etsy.
University of Houston Letter Cake
I enjoyed making this fantastic letter cake for a grad from my alma mater. Go Coogs! I found the U of H cookie cutter at the local baking store. (I am not able to find a similar one on Etsy or online)
