Graduation Party Day—Cake Worked

What a whirlwind 24-hours!

Last night was the graduation ceremony. Today was going around to the many graduation Open Houses. It was so good to see so many of the people who have been very important to our lives since moving back to the Midwest.

We were actually able to make it to several parties we were invited to today, and host the one for our graduate, plus have a birthday call this evening.

I had written about the food items being planned for our Open House. The new thing I thought I might try, I did. And, it worked! The following pictures are the process, and the end result. If I do say so myself, it all turned out pretty delicious.
