This cake was made to celebrate a graduation. Can you guess the graduation girl’s favorite color? Yup, it’s purple. This cake was actually inspired by a birthday cake I made a few years ago. I hate to make the same cake twice, every cake needs to be special and new so I made a few changes and I love the result!
The stars really bring the cake to life. The bow is handcrafted from gum paste that I tinted purple. It was then airbrushed with pearl shimmer color. Here is a closer look.
The cake was vanilla cake filled with chocolate fudge. Once it was filled and crumb coated, I covered it in white fondant. I then airbrushed it a glittery purple color. Finally, I added black fondant zebra stripes. A message to the graduation girl was added to the silver cake board.
