Hello Kitty Graduation Cake

Wow! I haven’t posted in such a long time. Sorry, I was really busy with graduation and Christmas. I still can’t believe that I graduated from college. I feel like the years went by too quickly. I still remember every detail of when I graduated from high school in 2007. I am excited to get back to crafting and taking it easy for these upcoming months. I didn’t want to start teaching right away, so I am just going to be subbing and I hope to get a teaching job by August.
I am not a fan of having parties for myself, but my mom wanted me to have a graduation party. I made a few party favors and I will post those tomorrow. 

I wanted to share the cake that my mom and sister helped me create. My sister baked the cake and it’s actually a 3 layered cake; 2 layers are blue and 1 layer is orange. I’ll post a picture as soon as I cut the cake. I don’t want to cut it yet : ) My mom added the frosting and rolled out the fondant. I am not that great at making tortillas, so I haven’t tried rolling out the fondant.
Cartridge Used: Hello Kitty Greetings (HK cut at 7 inches)
Cutting fondant is as easy as cutting paper.
 Just roll out the fondant, add it to the mat, and press cut.
I cut one color at a time.
TIP: My mom uses parchment paper to roll out the fondant on.
My mom used this impression mat called Wilton Fondant and Gum Paste Silicone Mold Baroque that she bought at Michaels to create the border. All you have to do is roll out pieces of fondant on the mat and pull it out and you have a border. I found this video on youtube that shows you how to make the border. Fast forward to 7:00 minutes.

This is a picture of me and my sorority sisters who went to my graduation. Love them!!! For those of you who don't already know, I get my blog's name "Gamma" from the nickname that people call us, "Gammas".
 Me :) Yay, I graduated with honors!!!
