Graduation Prep

24 05 2010

I’ve been sadly remiss in posting the last two months.  Suffice it to say, life has been hectic.

Jesse graduates from 8th grade today and I spent a little creative time yesterday preparing for that.  My cake decorating in recent years has gotten extremely simple.  So this time just an easy sheet cake for the two graduates.

I found the idea for the mortar boards at Bakerella and made up a whole Reese’s miniature bag worth.  I was cheap and in a hurry so didn’t hunt down the Godiva chocolates, instead I cut up Hershey bars.  The Godiva would have looked more professional, but hey they are just going to get eaten by a bunch of kids.

It is almost 7am and I need to take off to help drive 7-9th graders around and do what I can to help set up for graduation.  With school letting out tomorrow, I expect to be making my presence known here more often.

The mortar boards are soooo cute! I know the kids will really enjoy them. And it is good to see you back in Blogville… looking forward to your summer posts.

Those are really cool! It is a good thing I did not see them before today since my son graduated this past week end from high school and his party is all done – I would not have had time to play around with these. BUT… just so I know, what are the tassels? Strips of fruit roll-ups? Would those work?
