Truth be told, it's very hard for us to make any "novelty" cakes for special occasions because we refuse to compromise the quality of our cakes. This includes adding artificial food coloring (or artificial flavoring) and the use of fondant, which may look nice but doesn't quite meet our standards.
Thankfully we can offer a Graduation Cake that is still fun, unique and elegant without having to compromise our recipes or traditions. We were able to design a cake that mimics that of a graduation cap and place that on top of a sheet cake for optimal servings - perfect for graduation parties! Our graduation caps are made out of the same quality cakes we always bake, with a little added help of a decorated board and a real tassel.
Now of course the board and the tassel aren't edible, but the rest of the cap is!
We bake a whole range of sizes for graduation, from 20 servings to over 100. Please see our website for pricing and serving information, or call our stores to place an order.
Because we are stacking cakes, we are only able to make our Cap N Tassel graduation cakes in our American Style flavors only. This includes: Chocolate on Chocolate, Chocolate Mocha, Chocolate Rum, Chocolate Orange Almond, Orange Almond, Carrot, Zucchini, Poppyseed, Lady Regina and Lady Baltimore.
Pre-orders are required so please call us! Congratulations to all 2012 graduates!

Graduation is just around the corner. Whether your loved one is graduating from college, high school or middle school, it’s definitely an occasion to remember. Speaking from experience, I remember the best parts about graduating wasn’t only never having to take another final exam again, but also celebrating this momentous occasions with friends and family. And any momentous occasion is an occasion to have cake. But for this occasion, not just any cake – but a Cap ‘N’ Tassel Cake.
What makes our graduation cakes unique is that the graduation cap that rests on the top of the cake is actually also made from cake, 100% edible. Put that together with a board and a tassel (note: this part’s NOT edible!), and viola! We have a graduation cap.
Although we do make them in a 1/4 Sheet size, we recommend the 1/2 Sheet since it’s a better cap-to-cake ratio. For both of these sizes, the cap will be made out of a 6″ cake. For the Full Sheet size, we’ll use a 8″ cake. Because we’ll be stacking the cakes, we can only make the Graduation Cakes in our American Style flavors. That is, our Chocolate on Chocolate (our most popular cake!), Chocolate Mocha, Chocolate Rum, Orange Almond, Chocolate Orange Almond, Carrot (a close second!), Lady Baltimore, Lady Regina, Lemon Poppyseed and finally our Zucchini cake.
Feel free to place your orders now, and Congratulations Class of 2010!
