Graduation Cakes and Cupcakes

Graduation season is approaching, and now is the time to start preparing for the perfect party. Cakes and cupcakes are ideal for any graduation party, from preschool to college. With so many options, you may be as creative as you like or keep it simple. In either case, your favorite graduate will appreciate the tasty treat. 

Cake toppers, cupcake wrappers and picks, fondant and cake pans, and edible picture toppers are some of the greatest solutions we’ve found for making your cake or cupcake extra special. There are even graduation cake pops available if you want a ready-made treat. The first part of this post will be about cakes, and the second will be about cupcakes and of course with an honorable mention of cookies. You can skip to whatever section you like or look at both! Our goal is to provide you with some inspiration along with the best supplies we have found.

Glitter Congrats Grad Cake Topper


We wanted to share our favorite video for creating and decorating a graduation cake. The cake in the video is so beautiful and creative. It would be so easy to adopt all or some of the ideas shown in the video to make your own special cake. You could change fondant colors to match school colors, change the cutout of an individual to match that of your graduate, add a design element such as a mini cake that resembles a book, etc. The possibilities are endless!

We hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did. Now to share some of our favorite supplies and decorations…
