Topsy Turvy Graduation Cake (1868)
One of my favorite things about working with customers over the years is the opportunity to create multiple cakes for their families in celebration of significant life events. In May 2009 we celebrated the graduation of Andrew & Matthew in Denville, NJ with a topper cake and graduation cupcake stand.
Two years later, we were honored when the Denville family reached out to us again to help create a cake for their daughter who is graduating this year.
We created a 4 tier topsy turvy cake for the celebration. The top of the cake includes a hot pink “2011” topper with stars in all different colors. Along each tier are several different mementos that have meaning for the graduate including musical notes, a lacrosse stick, a green soccer ball, a basketball, a princess tiara and Muhlenberg’s logo.
Colors included lime green, purple, blue, red and hot pink. Flavors and filling were chocolate with peanut buttercream, vanilla with chocolate buttercream chocolate with oreos and cream buttercream, and red velvet with vanilla and raspberry chambord buttercream.
