What to Write on Graduation Cakes

The cake-top message for your graduation party should be simple and heartfelt.

Simply saying, “Congratulations, Grad!” can convey your deepest feelings. In addition to “Congratulations!” you could also write “Class of (Graduation Year)” or “You Did It!”

Pick a short but impactful phrase that conveys the intended meaning. The message on your cake should be brief, but heartfelt and unique.

How Much are Graduation Cakes?

Unlike your run-of-the-mill bakery, specialty cake pastry chefs specialize in making elaborate, custom-decorated cakes with multiple tiers. It is just as important how these cakes look as how they taste, and many experts have mastered the art of pleasing both palates. Experts also know how to deliver even the most intricate and perishable cakes to their customers in perfect condition. The price of a cake depends on several factors, including its size, design, flavor(s), and how far it needs to be transported before it can be served.
