We bust ours to kick yours...
Yesterday was my brother's graduation from college. A very prestigious college mind you, the Colorado School of Mines. Not only is it famous for being very difficult, but he graduated with two degrees: Chemical Engineering and Economics.
So this great event warranted a cake from yours truly. I created two books, each representing one of his degrees. Complete with a mortar board and a jackass.
No, the jackass wasn't some kind of jab at my brother; it is their mascot. I cut out the silhouette and drew the animal with edible marker. [Much like how I did the characters for the VBS cake]
And the cap is made by covering a small carved cake and placing a square piece of cardboard with is covered in fondant on top.
And here is the graduate and I with his cake. Complete with the office playing in the background.
