There are so many graduations going on this time of year. One special friend of ours graduated from nursing school this week. Here is the cake a friend made for her. The cake is more beautiful in person.
The band aids looked so real, I had to touch them to see. The cake is pound cake and the only fondant is the stethoscope, band aids, and pills. The icing is a cool whip type icing.
Congratulations Lauren and to all nurses graduating. As a friend of mine said, Nurses are under rated.
I have a lot of friends graduating this year from nursing school, high school, and college. I have been looking for graduation gift ideas and parties. Here are some really cute graduation gifts I found.
This is one graduation gift I have never seen before. Absolutely clever idea and one sure to please, no matter the age.
I have always thought these bottles that look like they came with the gifts inside are just the cutest. A slit in the side is used to get the gifts inside. You can use the original label or make your own custom label.
I really like this box decorated like a graduation cap. It is perfect for graduation cards and money.There are probably a lot more ideas that can be done with this box
Here are a few nursing graduation party invitations:
My beautiful niece s a Nursing Graduate. Her Future Mother in Law made the cakes for her graduation party. The cake was a pink nurse's scrub with a stethoscope, pockets with scissors and a ink pen, and it had and ID badge with Krista RN . At the bottom it had congratulations.
This is a second cake that was called First Aid Cake Squares.
It has red crosses and band aids. Everyone was amazed at the creativity of these Nurses Cake.
- Sandwich Meat (1 slice per diploma)
- Sliced cheese (Swiss or provolone work best)
- Red, orange, and green bell pepper (optional)
Here is a cool idea for graduation parties. This photo and cheese diploma is from Family Fun.
- For each diploma, stack a slice of sandwich meat on a slice of cheese.
- Roll them up and tie each diploma with a scallion.
For a festive presentation, jazz up the plate with chopped pepper confetti.
How to make Jello Syringes: Replace half the water with alcohol.
- Heat 1 cup water, stir in the jello to melt
- Add 1 cup alcohol
- Pull the liquid into the syringes
- Cool for 2-3 hours.
Some replace all the liquid with alcohol. It is up to you how drunk you want your guests.
Jello shot Syringes can be purchased at the following link:
Don't forget the kids, these syringes can be used at vampire birthday parties or Halloween parties without the alcohol.
These simple candy pops are a great way to add extra fun to graduation celebrations. With a mini Reese cup, a small chocolate square, and air head extreme belts, they are simple to make. Visit Bakerella for Instructions to learn how to make these and to make them in different colors.
My niece is graduating in May and wanted me to make graduation favors for her graduating class. After several days I came up with the idea of taking a diploma certificate design and making a lifesaver candy roll wrapper from it. It looked like a mini diploma with her school colors. Krista is so thrilled with the candy rolls and can hardly wait to give them out.
