Before my graduation, my husband and I hosted lunch at our house for our families. We originally planned to order a custom cake, complete with frosting decorations. But here’s the secret: I don’t really like cake that much. (In fact, we didn’t even have a traditional cake at our wedding.)
So we wound up picking up this mousse cake instead. But of course, the mousse cake didn’t look like it had much to do with a graduation. No messages spelled out in frosting, or fondant graduation caps and diplomas. I didn’t want anything that elaborate anyway. So a few minutes before everyone arrived, I made this simple banner to go on top of the cake. I just used some creamy cardstock I had on hand and a bamboo skewer (cut down to size).
Ordinarily I can be kind of a perfectionist about these things, but in this case, I just cut out the shape freehand and wrote the message with a Sharpie.
Simple and fast. And the mousse was delicious!
