What Kind of Cake To Serve at a Graduation Party

While you can definitely do "graduation-themed" cakes—such as tassel cakes, graduation hat cakes, diploma cakes or even money cakes, you don't have to feel confined to those.

Maybe the graduate has a favorite cake flavor he/she would love to have on his/her special day. Cupcakes are also a great idea for a grad party because they are self-serve and perfect for mingling.

Or perhaps the guest of honor has another favorite dessert they would love to see transformed into a cake? Check out the S'mores Cake, Oatmeal Cream Pie Cake and Snickerdoodle Cake for tasty examples of this extra personal touch.

Why stop at just one cake? You can also offer a few different varieties for a fun cake buffet.
