2nd grduation cake in the same weekend. I was pooped. I made the grad hat and diploma out of gumpaste. The school mascot was a tiger so I put tiger paw prints on one of the tiers.

Here is a cake that made for my birthday this year. I was so happy with the way it turned out. I used chocolate fondant and also some white fondant that I colored pink. The 30 was made with gumpaste. For something different I went with peanut butter buttercream, it went so well with chocolate cake.
