Glitter and Gold – Graduation Celebration

When I started thinking about Fabiane’s graduation cake, I knew for sure I didn’t want to go with the usual graduation cap and diploma decorations. I wanted a more sophisticated and mature concept for the cake. So I came up with gold and glitter stars for a job well done. Here I am using glitter again! Not only glitter but gold glitter and gold accents.

In addition to the cake, I made  celebratory hostess gift cupcakes. These chocolate cupcakes are one of my favorites. Moist chocolate cake filled with brigadeiro filling and frosted with chocolate meringue buttercream.

Cake Walk at May Faire

A couple weeks ago, my friend Erica Linhares asked me if I could donate a cake for her kids’ school May Faire. I was very happy to accept her invitation and also to join the festivities. The Waldorf School of Orange County promotes every¬†year a day of fun with tons of activities for their students, families and friends. One of the many events is the Cake Walk where donated cakes are part of the fun games happening during the day.
