Books Graduation Cake The physics book was chocolate orange butter cake with dark chocolate ganache filling. The psychology book was vanilla cake with vanilla pastry cream filling. The calculus book was white chocolate lime cake with lime curd and lime buttercream filling. 

The board the cakes sit on were covered in a fondant reproduction of my nephew's lacrosse jersey. The numbers and letters were made of layered pieces of colored fondant. The white part of the jersey was imprinted with a texture to make it look like a fabric jersey.
