This was a challenge but 100% worth all the hard work. Two days, three cakes and 5lbs of fondant later I created a Graduation/21 Birthday cake for my cousins Chris & Joey. I had to do one cake for both and this is the creation I came up with!
Not too shabby for my very first 3-tier cake!
.... I got the idea for the cupcakes from Martha Stewarts' CUPCAKES book, but added a special (much easier) touch!
See you soon......
