Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Graduation Cake I made this for my niece for her high school graduation. All of her friends at her party voted this cake the best graduation cake of their year! Time consuming but really worth it to see the look on her face

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made this for a friend's son graduation and everyone loved it!! I didn't do exactly this design, but I was interested in it and came up with my own image. I really love getting ideas from cakes and trying to create my own work from it. I will say that the little people are a little tricky cutting out, but I had lots of fun making this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a sheet cake using this theme. I used black sugar sheets that another reviewer suggested in stead of fondant. The cake turned out great. The sugar sheets were so easy to use. I cut the shapes out with a regular pair of scissors and the lines were clean. The sheets were faster and easier to use than the fondant. The sugar sheets really have no taste and the sheets melt into the cake. So happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made this last weekend for a high school graduation party. The kids all loved it! The tip about using vodka to clean up the black cut outs was great. Took the sugar off and the cut outs came out nice and black. Also, I found that using a toothpick to gently push the cut out letters out of the molds also helps..along with dipping them in powdered sugar first. Overall an impressive design, a bit time consuming, but not too difficult.
