I made this cake back in May, in the midts of graduation season and unfortunately it never made it to the blog. Lately I've had my hands full, I had my parents here, visiting from Europe for 3 weeks, our garden started to produce a lot of veggies and I'm cooking many new meals. I fell victim for zucchini cheese pasta rolls, zucchini lasagna and zucchini chips. I'm also creating new videos for my you tube channel. You see, I'm full of legitimate excuses as of why I'm not posting more often on the blog. I promise though I'm going to try to keep up with it all and post more often than I'd been doing in the past several months.
Back to the Nurse Cake. I used my Velvet Vanilla Pound Cake recipe and Swiss Buttercream. Clearly, they are the favorite! I also wanted to include few decorations, everyday tools a nurse uses every day, and so I made a stethoscope, band-aids, and a white gauze bandage. I also included the graduation cap made from fondant mixed with little bit of tylose. You can see it all come together in my full video posted at the end of this post. Enjoy.

Food Colorings: black, red, ivory
