Graduation Faux Cake Decor **Makin's Clay & Creative Embellishments & Eyelet Outlet & Canvas Corp & Tattered Angels & Beacon**

My husband is graduating this May with his Master's Degree and we are hosting a party to celebrate.  So of course I wanted to help make some fun and unique decorations to help celebrate this amazing event!!  I have already created the Dessert Stand for these amazing cookies my friend made, and now I want a centerpiece for the food table as a fun decor item.

I started out making the fun Mortarboard for the topper our of Makin’s Clay® in black using the Makin’s Clay® Texture Sheet C in weave and the Makin’s Clay® Standard tools.   I then used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to color the sting for the tassel of the hat.  Here is a video tutorial on how I made this fun little hat for the top of the cake.

I then set out to create all the embellishments and assembling/painting/adding Canvas Corp paper to the base of the cake with boxes, the little paper mortarboard for the sides from EZ Laser Designs, Makin’s Clay® ropes in black for the piping along the edges, the white Makin’s Clay® doily with the Makin’s Clay® Texture Sheet Set C in Lace, little Makin’s Clay® rolled balls in white for the corners, and painting the Creative Embellishments chipboard numbers.  Here is a video tutorial on how I created all the steps above.

The last step is to combine all the parts together.  Check out my video tutorial below!!

I got to use some amazing products for this little centerpiece.  All are shown below.

My little faux cake looks amazing as the centerpiece for our food table!!

Here are some other pics of the faux cake.

Have fun at your next party!!!
