Sebby's Sunshine Graduation Cake

My grandson, Sebby, graduated from Kindergarten last Tuesday evening.  I can't believe he is that old already.  Smart kid too!  I made the cake for the reception after the school program.  The name of their school is Sunshine Christian School so, of course, I had to make a sun!  This was a fun chance to do something different.  I used my smallest Pyrex mixing bowl to make to two half sphere cakes.  I use butter cream icing to glue the two halves together.  Then I covered with yellow fondant.

The sun glasses and graduation cap are made out of equal parts of gum paste and fondant. There are six stars representing each graduate.  I used the butter cream for the clouds and the rest of the cake. This was a full sheet cake with triple chocolate cake on the bottom layer, then butter cream frosting, and finally a yellow cake on top.

I use boxed cake mixes for most of my cakes.  I dress them up sometimes but they are fast and easy to adjust to altitude.  I do have some homemade recipes that I have shared in previous blogs.
He's such a cutie in that cap and gown!
