CAKE WITH SUGAR HAT & DIPLOMA
The links take you to needed products.
This book design works well for any graduate. Cut a quarter sheet cake in half (9x13") and stack it, so it looks like a closed book.
A half sheet cake also works if you need more servings. Ice one long side and the two short sides of the cake with white, icing.
Use an icing comb on these sides to make it look like the pages of a book. Airbrush the combed icing gold. Ice the remaining side and top of the cake in the requested color. I chose to use red.
Use tip No. 8 and red icing to pipe the edges of the top cover and bottom border of the cake. Use the same tip and red icing to pipe details on the book's cover. Place a sugar diploma and cap #14285 on the center of the cake.
Use a cut parchment paper tube to pipe an appropriate message and overpipe the details on the hook.
To add more servings to the cake or another flavor surround it with cupcakes decorated with the graduation year and plastic picks.
