Graduation Cupcakes & Cakes


Samuel, my first born, the child that wasn't allowed to watch Scooby-Doo until he was five, the child that wasn't allowed to watch a single PG-13 action packed adventure movie until he turned 13, the child for whom I sanitized everything, the child who endured my rookie mistakes and turned me from a sometimes wishy-washy girl into a sometimes authoritative mother, graduated this week -- from the 8th grade.

Down South, that's a big deal, and I don't mean that in a deprecating sort of way.  In The South, most everything deserves proper celebration, and this was one of those occasions.  Eighth grade, the end of the road at our little school, marks the parting of ways of decade long friendships.


I was so proud of these character-filled young men and women as they stood together to receive their accolades and diplomas.  Before me stood the future leaders of the next generation.


Theses cupcakes topped with chocolate-scripted toppers were an elegant and festive addition to the reception table.


Each graduate received a take home box with an individual, 4" personalized graduate cake.


Are they not adorable?  You can find the candy molds to make these yourself HERE, or you could just hire a really talented professional and just take the credit yourself.  Wait.  Did I really say that?  Out loud?


Here's a few more shots of the graduation tables for your enjoyment.


I can take no credit for these.  They were done by my fabulously creative friend, Deanna.


Aren't they the most beautiful Hydrangeas?
