With graduations still going I though you might wanted to get a quick idea for a last minute cake for a friend or family member.
I needed this cake on Friday morning so I baked the Red Velvet cake on Wednesday night , I also made the buttercream and put cake and buttercream in the refrigerator. Thursday night,I whipped the buttercream, I assembled the cake ( my normal 3 layers of cake and 2 layers of buttercream) I crumb coated the cake, let it chill in the refrigerator for a few minutes, took it out and frosted it.
I am not really good with buttercream cakes, but my talented blog friend Jennifer, from Cup a Dee Cakes has a wonderful buttercream video tutorial . I am sure you will find it very useful.
I got my cookie cutters out, some black and white fondant and made the diploma and the girl silhouette
I used big tips to add a little detail on the cake and the borders, and that's it, cake was done!!
I hope you all have a great holiday weekend !
