The artistry in those strawberries and 'roses' surrounding the wishes of all for your niece. Congrats are in order for this transition, and college in Philly will be exciting as well!

Feel your proud. My husband just got his Masters 2 weeks ago and is done with school - forever - and I scream with happiness, but he is not getting such a yummy treat :)
Congratulation! And good luck in college!

Congratulations to your niece... what a milestone. College goes faster than you think... my daughter graduated last year from William and Mary and is now in grad school and on her own. It seems like only yesterday that she was a baby!

Raven said...

I just noticed the tiny diploma and cap in the upper left hand corner. Too cute!

Nobody beats the Americans when it comes to making artistic and sure also tasty cakes.
All that work put in a cake that is to be eaten.
Wow.
It seems that this one cake is superseding all others.
Rich dark chocolate, fresh strawberries and those pink roses.
If I ever come to America, I'll give up all my calorie counting and just
enjoy.

Congratulations to the graduate and what a great looking cake to celebrate with! I'm not sure what looks better here, the strawberries or the chocolates or ... !!

Martha said...

I will cut you a slice of my strawberry cake for some of this chocolate cake. Congrats to your niece and Thanks for your visit for Ruby Tuesday. Gosh, I miss Brooklyn food. Greetings from Los Angeles.

Gattina said...

Wow ! what a cake !

Patti said...

Now that is a cake. Yummy, as all the others have already said. The artistry is wonderful, with fresh strawberries around the edges.

Congratulations to Caitlin and best of luck to her in college.

Glad you liked my Ruby Tuesday offering. It's not a lunch box, but a good-sized case, or an "apartment" for two dolls, with cabinets and closets.

I may bring out Midge for next week's RT. Stay tuned. ;-)

Patti said...

re: your comment - that's funny, I was all pink and frilly as a child myself.

(I'm guessing you may not have been)
