Recently it was that very special time of the year for all year 12 students here in Australia, graduation which means lots of school formals & parties.
A customer was having a party for her daughter & her daughters boy friend for their year 12 graduation & wanted something special to mark the event.
They were making their own cupcakes but wanted them to really stand out so requested me to design some graduation cupcake toppers for them so this is what I created.
They wanted 1 dozen so I made 5 graduation caps, 5 scrolls & 2 message toppers.
All were made using home made marshmallow fondant sugarpaste & the lovely teal colour was chosen to match the colour of the young ladies formal dress.
I embossed all the caps with '2009' to signify that they were the class of 2009. The message toppers I embossed with congrats & their names & finished them with little streamers & 'confetti' (which were sugar pearls).
As a little free extra I also made the customer up some matching teal sugar crystal sprinkles for her cupcakes just to really complete the look for them.
