”OMG my graduation cake was awesome. I was surprised when I saw it because when the cake was delivered I was not there, so I didn't get to see it till I arrived. I took plenty of pictures. It was delicious and it was definitely a piece of art. Everyone loved the cake and asked me who made it. The people were like that cake doesn't look like it was made here, LOL. Then they started freaking out when I started eating the cap and diploma because they didn't know it was edible. One lady thought the cake was a toy; can you believe that? I was like, definitely not, where could they possibly get a toy that looks like that. Ha! I will definitely use your service in the future. Thanks for everything.” Hilda V. – Wilson, NC

Here are some preschool graduation cake ideas we have done recently.

Finding the combination of price, taste, excitement, and uniqueness was indeed a challenge.

This picture cake was for a preschool graduation. I had the teacher get all of the students to sign their names on a piece of paper, then took the class picture and scanned it in along with each signature.

We printed it out on edible paper with my printer that has edible ink, and then decorated it! The kids loved it! They were amazed to see their faces on that cake! What a great graduation cake idea!

graduation tiger cake image

This is a kindergarten graduation cake idea we did for the Tigers. The schools’ mascot is a tiger so I made it with fondant tiger stripes.

It is a 12x18 sheet cake, that is butter recipe, with butter-cream icing colored orange.

The black stripes are made from fondant. I also printed the class picture on our printer with the edible paper & ink. This graduation tiger cake was the talk of the class.
