When it comes to planning a graduation menu, most people will take on a taco buffet or some other main meal concept, but prefer to leave the dessert to the pros, said Jane Patrzalek, owner of Jane's Cakes and Confections in Perrysburg.
Over the next few weeks, she'll bake black and yellow cake pops, and cupcakes with little Yellow Jackets. She'll create some elaborate themes, such as cakes with diplomas, stacked books and "edible images" of the graduate pictured as a first-grader and from today.
Patrzalek has even made a "scales of justice" cake, celebrating a law graduate.
Believe it or not, the do-it-yourself site Pinterest is fueling her bakery business.
"Some of them (the ideas) are so complicated that they wouldn't want to attempt them on their own," she said.
Sheet cakes are the most requested, Patrzalek said, but cake pops are becoming popular. The nuggets can be dipped in frostings featuring school colors, then swirled in sprinkles.
"They're much easier to serve. No one has to stand and cut a cake," Patrzalek said.
