Wise Owl Graduation Cake

It's graduation time, folks! Lots of young adults getting ready to leave the nest and head off into the "real" world. Remember that world- late night parties, beer bongs, cramming for exams, head in the toilet... Ah, the good old days! *giggles*


I was asked to create a cake for two brothers who were graduating from different local high schools. Each of the handpainted owls was one of the boys and the books represented the school each one was attending in the fall. The board was handpainted to look like a wooden desk- which I have been doing quite a bit lately.

The suitcase was the "real" cake. It was alternating 4 layers of yellow and chocolate butter, filled with white and milk chocolate buttercream and chocolate ganache, iced in white chocolate buttercream and covered in chocolate fondant. *yum* When all put together, this was ONE BIG cake.


Congrats to Korben and Matthew. Enjoy your journey in life.....
