Big Life Moments

My neighborhood has a ton of graduating seniors this year.  Every street has several houses with balloons on the mailboxes and banners on the porches.  It's such a special time for so many of the families here.  This week,  I completed the last 2 of the 3 graduation projects on my calendar for this year.  Combined with birthdays and weddings, I have been slammed - but in such a good way.

The first project was for a very talented graduate in our neighborhood....a star swimmer and one of the coaches of our swim team.  Her Mom asked me to help with the graduation party, and I immediately knew that I wanted to make a figurine of Olivia to place on top of the celebration cake.  I was provided with a copy of the graduation invitation, and was able to create Olivia in her cap and gown with an exact match of the purple school color. And her tassel is a Twizzler!

Next was a cake for the son of a friend of a neighbor.  I have received lots of business from referrals, and I thank all of those who have spread the word!  The cake is a 5" tall, 3 layer White Almond Sour Cream with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream and fondant.  I love the silhouette effect and especially the flying graduation caps.

Congrats to all of this year's graduates!
Confectionately yours!
