Off To College!

 
Vintage Suitcase Cake.jpg
 

For my own daughter's high school graduation, I wanted to design a cake that would reflect her multi-faceted personality.  She's very arty and musical, plays lacrosse, loves to bake and make things, so I imagined her trying to pack to go to college! I took inspiration from her favorite flea market vintage suitcase and stuffed it full of everything I thought she'd be trying to take with her.

 I think this dripping glue gun might be my favorite bit of the whole cake!
