Gift Box Cakes

High school graduation ceremonies are quickly approaching for the class of 2010! A few of the little kiddos I’ve known almost my whole life are now all grown up. *Sigh* You really start to feel old when you think back and remember when the person now graduating high school was born and then called herself “Toot” for the first few years of her life (Tracie, the one in pink).

Or when you used to play soccer with her in the backyard and she was a little tomboy (Jennifer).

What gorgeous girls! I wish I could make them both amazing graduation cakes…but it’s just not meant to be.

In honor of all the 2010 graduates, here is a cake we made recently for a girl soon to be attending the University of Florida:

The cake was iced in buttercream and trimmed with fondant ribbons.

The topper was a hand-modeled gum paste gator and bow.

And for those preferring a more girly gift cake:

This cake was covered with white fondant and topped with a pink gum paste bow. Then, pearl dragees were randomly attached to the package for some extra “bling.”

Congrats, Class of 2010!
