Graduation Cap & Diploma Cake Toppers Tutorial

My elder daughter has completed her kindergarten program! Time flies… I still remember she cried for three whole months when she started school at the age of two (she actually broke the school record). We had a BBQ gathering last night with all other prenatal class classmates. I made a graduation cake for the kids to celebrate their new page of life. These kids have known each other before they were even born. It is such a blessing to watch them grow. I hope they will continue to enjoy their school life after going to grade one.

Here is how I made the cake toppers. Everything is edible. The steps are fairly simple too. Feel free to make one for your graduates.

EC的大女兒幼稚園畢業了!仍記得她兩歲初次返學時足足哭了三個月才適應學校生活,更打破了學校記錄,原來這些都是四年前的往事。昨天是EC與產前班同學們的BBQ聚會,EC特意為小朋友們準備了畢業蛋糕,這班小朋友仍在媽媽肚子內時經已彼此認識,能夠看到他們逐漸長大確實是無比的褔氣,希望小朋友們升上小一後能繼續享受校園生活吧!

以下是蛋糕裝飾做法,全可食用,做法簡單,有興趣可以一起動手試一試。

Rolling mat and rolling pin
Knife and ruler
Round cookie cutter or small cake ring

麵棍及墊
小刀和間尺
圓形曲奇模或小慕絲圈
小碗

Directions 做法

For the Graduation Cap 畢業帽

Place chocolate in a small bowl. Melt chocolate over a double boiler or with a microwave (with medium power). Stir in Cheerios or Rice Krispies. Spoon and firmly pack mixture into a round mold. Chill until chocolate has harden. Remove from mold. You may use any kind of chocolate. I used two parts chocolate and one part Cheerios in weight. For the 2.5 by 1.25 inch cake ring that I used, 40 g of chocolate and 20 g of Cheerios is required).
將朱古力放在碗中隔水加熱或用微波爐以中火叮溶,加入Cheerios拌匀後倒入圓模中用匙羹壓實,雪藏至硬後脫模。
(可用任何朱古力,重量比例為兩份朱古力一份Cheerios,EC用2.5×1.25吋的小型慕絲圈,約需40克朱古力和20克Cheerios)

Knead black modeling chocolate until pliable. Roll out thinly with a rolling pin. With a knife, cut a long strip that is as wide as the height of the Cheerios block. Spread a thin layer of melted chocolate around the block. Wrap strip around and trim off the excess.
將黑色造形朱古力搓軟後用麵棍碌薄,依圓形的高度切出長條,以溶朱古力作膠水,將長條圍着圓形後切掉多出的部份。

With a square cookie cutter that is slightly larger than the block (or just cut with a knife), cut a square piece from black modeling chocolate. Attach piece to the top of the block with melted chocolate.
用比圓形大一點的正方形曲奇模印出(或用小刀切出)正方形黑色造形朱古力,用溶朱古力黏在圓形頂部。

Roll yellow modeling chocolate into several long, thin ropes. Form a tassel by gathering them together. Pinch the top slightly and attach it to the middle of the cap. Add a small ball of yellow modeling chocolate on top.
將黃色造型朱古力搓成數條幼條,重疊後將頂部扎在一起做成流蘇黏在帽子頂部,加上一個黃色小圓球即成。

For the Diploma 畢業証書

Knead white modeling chocolate until pliable. Roll a small amount into a stick then trim to appropriate size.
白色造型朱古力搓軟後取少部份搓成粗條,切成適當長度。

Roll out white modeling chocolate thinly with a rolling pin. Cut it into a square. Place the stick at the base of the square and start rolling from the bottom to form a diploma.
取少量白色造型朱古力用麵棍碌薄後切成正方形,將粗條放在正方形底部後從下向上捲起做成証書。

Roll out red modeling chocolate thinly. Cut a thin strip with a knife and wrap around the diploma.
紅色造型朱古力碌薄,用小刀切成小長條包住証書中央即成。
