My husband is graduating this May with his Master’s Degree and we are hosting a party to celebrate. So of course I wanted to help make some fun and unique decorations to help celebrate this amazing event!! I have already created the Dessert Stand for these amazing cookies my friend made, and now I want a centerpiece for the food table as a fun decor item.
I started out making the graduation cap for top, video below.
I then set out to create all the embellishments and assembling/painting/adding paper to the base of the cake with boxes, the little paper mortarboard for the sides from, more clay, and painting the Creative Embellishments chipboard numbers and words. Here is a video tutorial on how I created all the steps above.
The last step is to combine all the parts together. Check out my video tutorial below!!
The chipboard pieces I used for this project are the Celebrate Words Set and Basic Alphabet. I painted and spray them all in orange to match the colors of the school.
My little faux cake looks amazing as the centerpiece for our food table!!
Here are some other pics of the faux cake.
Have fun at your next party!!!
