It’s been awhile since I mentioned my backlog of cake pictures, but I haven’t forgotten them all – I just sort of put them “out of sight, out of mind” when I moved them all to an external hard drive. BUT – I’m still determined to go through them and at the very least – share my favorites! When I was looking through them recently, I found a folder where I made three Nursing School Graduation cakes. In one weekend.
And since they’re all pretty cute and it’s May, which is graduation season, it seemed like a good time to share them. Oh… one more thing I should mention. While looking through them I actually realized that I actually had 7 cakes that weekend. I’m so glad I’m not doing that anymore – it’s exhausting just to think about it!
Okay – so let’s look at the cakes! I’ll share a few details about each one, but if you have further questions, leave me a comment! Here’s the first one:
Lexi was graduating from ASC Nursing School – hence, the purple and gold. The little nursing hat (not sure if there’s a more proper name for it) and the pill bottle were made from gum paste. The pills were different colored Tic Tacs and some other candy my husband found for me at the dollar store.
The cake was an 8″ round cake – red velvet with cream cheese buttercream filling and frosting, then covered and decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant. I used Funky Alphabet Cutters for Lexi’s name and Block Tappits for the “Congratulations”.
This next cake was very similar to the first one! The biggest changes were the colors. For Amber’s cake, the primary color was obviously red, and I used Satin Ice Red Fondant to cover the cake. Oh and I used Satin Ice black fondant for the stethoscopes on both of these first two cakes. I checked my schedule for notes on this cake and the only note was “check FB messages” so I can’t tell you what flavor it was (or I probably could – but I really don’t want to dig that much 😉 )
And last.. this sweet cake. It was a 9″ round cake – chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream filling and frosting. It was covered in homemade marshmallow fondant, then the ribbon border (click HERE for how to do ribbon borders) and circle on top were Satin Ice red fondant. I used a food marker for the “heartbeat” line and I made the topper to look like the nurse from gum paste. After delivery, my client sent me this super sweet pic:
I love to hear from happy customers 🙂
And that’s that… my 3 Nursing School Graduation Cakes from that weekend in April back in 2014! Here are some other Nursing and Graduation Cakes I’ve done:
