Any occasion worth celebrated always deserves a cake! The latest occasion was the graduation of my cousin-in-law who recently graduated from Concordia University with a teaching degree, and now has plans to go on and do a special certificate in order to teach English as a second language. This in itself is a wonderful achievement as there are only a few people accepted into the programme. This girl is going places and she was very deserving of a big party to celebrate this notch, and so with copious amounts of food and a nice big cake we honoured her and her brain!
Congrats Alessandra, you're awesome!!
The pieces to go on top of the cake.
A big red sugar rose for Alessandra.
A chocolate seal for the scroll... my own little addition, stamped with the seal from my Grand Dad's tannery.
I hand-painted the scroll, I wanted to include her graduation year...
... and at the other end of the scroll, I painted Concordia's motto.
All topped off with a grad cap!
Alessandra's favourite colour is green, so naturally the cake had to be green!
All put together!
With a little help from Justin, Alessandra cut the cake. Hope you enjoyed!!
