Congratulations 2013 Graduates!

8x8x2 square vanilla cake with strawberry filling and vanilla frosting. Fondant cap, tassel, diploma, circles, swirls and bow. The cap was filled in the inside with hot pink sand sugar and I wrote “Tori 2013” in black iridescent glitter gel. All of the frosting was sprinkled with peal flakes to give it some shine and then the whole decorated cake was sprinkled with rainbow luster dust. Congratulations 2013 Graduates!

9 hours to bake
8 cakes (four double stacked with four layer of cake and icing per cake)
24 eggs
10 sticks of butter
5lbs of shorting
10 lbs of powered sugar
12 batches of icing
it must weigh 28lbs i swear

photos are little blurry and glossy, the cakes were neither blurry or glossy...and the color is a bit off, the green is more of a mint green
