Instead, I just wanted to show you one of my clever Suzy-home-baker cakes I made last year.
This is when I graduated last year with my masters.
I made my own cakes and cupcakes for my party. lol..yes...I know.
The cake on the right is a sheet cake, and the cap on it is a round cake covered in black icing.
I dyed the icing with gel. SOOO much better than food coloring.
It comes in little jars like this --->
Anyway, the top of the cap is just a piece of cardboard that I covered in black fondant - and the tassel is purple fondant that I snaked and cut.
The cupcake toppers.....
Reese's peanut butter cups, turned upside down. Take off the outside wrapper, but leave the black wrapper on.
Then, I found little square candies and covered them in black fondant.
Again, I snaked yellow fondant for the tassel.
Anyway - with the end of school coming, maybe some of you can use this.
I had fun making them!
