Hot Pink and Black Graduation Cake

Hot Pink and Black Graduation Cake

The theme to my daughter's graduation party was hot pink and black and I couldn't find a local company to design me a cake for her party that I liked so I decided to give it a try. I made a three tier cake which consisted of banana cake on top, chocolate cake in the middle and white cake on the bottom. All three cakes were made from Pillsbury cake mixes. I find that their cake mixes turn out the moistest. I made all three cakes the night before the party and refrigerated them.
The morning of the party I made buttercream frosting and frosted the bottom layer first and layed on the decorated frosting sheets. I cut out pictures of my daughter throughout the years that I had made on edible frosting sheets. On each side of the cake I had a picture of her growing up on it. I then frosted the middle cake and layed the frosting sheet design on it, as well as the edible pictures of her on all four sides.
Finally the top. On top I frosted the cake and I had an edible image made with her picture and the Congrats on it. Then I added four more pictures of her on each side. Each picture on the cake stood for each grade of school with the top being her senior picture. Then I added four hot pink flowers that I had bought on clearance at a Michael's store that I had removed from their stem.
Finishing touches were I piped black lines around the cake to coverup imperfections that I could see. I piped around each picture so you could not see how the picture just layed on the cake and I made black flowers around each bottom of the cakes.

After thinking about your excellent cake I decided to go for something different. My sons are graduating and then travelling around Europe for a gap year. Their graduation cake will have a cap on top of a travel case, which will be decorated with fake travel stickers naming some of their destinations.

Great Design

Thanks for this. I had planned a fairly boring cake but saw this and instead made a layered cake with the colors my daughter loves.

I love the way you have designed the cake around the theme and also used a practical way of making the cake. Well Done!
