This cake is red velvet with cream cheese frosting on both tiers. The graduation cap is made from Rice Krispie Treats. The top of the hat has a thin piece of cardboard between two pieces of fondant to help it hold it's shape.
The flowers took about 4 hours to make. I had to make 24 flowers so there were lots of flower cutouts to do. Each flower consisted of 2 large daisy shaped cutouts and 4 1/2 small daisy cutouts. To make the center of the flower, I cut the small daisy in half and then snipped each petal in half. Those were then layered around the center.
The cupcakes and the cake pops are both strawberry cake. I used a cake pop machine to make the cake pops and then dipped them into melted chocolate. They were delicious!!
For the stripes, I ended up using royal icing. I had originally planned on using an edible writing pen, but I didn't like how it was coming out. I also did the same for the zebra cupcakes.
This is what the party table looked like...how fun!!
