Last weekend I made a couple of graduation cakes. The first one was for a very fortunate girl whose grandmother is sending her to Italy for a graduation trip/ gift. I was asked to make a cake that looked like the Coliseum. At first I thought, you have to be kidding me. Fortunately I had plenty of notice and time to think about how to make it happen. The end result was not Cake Boss quality, but I still think it looked good!
This cake is an 8-inch round, two layer white cake (with part of another cake to produce the ruins effect) with chocolate whipped filling, buttercream and fondant.
