I was asked to do a graduation cake for a special someone graduating to become a doctor, I had done a cake for their 21st birthday when they were off to train as a doctor, so I was honoured to be asked again. The previous cake was a doctors coat, click here to see pictures. Therefore we wanted this cake to be a little different but on the same theme.
The mortarboard on the top of the cake was made from homemade rice crispie squares. This was the first time I had used rice crispie squares and couldn’t believe how easy they were to make. I followed nigella’s recipe, click here to try it yourself.
The decorations were made from ready roll fondant, coloured as required. The message was written on a bandage, all this was decorating an 8” round chocolate sponge with chocolate frosting. Congratulations Nicola, you have done amazing and your dad is super proud.
