Is it just me or does end of year come around faster and faster every year!!! Term 4 is just about upon us and somehow, it’s already time to start thinking about end of year celebrations, graduations and teacher gifts!! So, we have compiled our easy end of school year cake kit ideas for you.
Create Memories with our End of School Year Cake Kits
With 3 girls only 4 years apart and a pretty noisy personality I was always the obvious choice for class coordinator. Which meant I was also usually in charge of end of year teacher gifts and treats for the kids at the presentation! One year I had 2 of the presentations in one morning. I literally ran from classroom to classroom delivering speeches and handing out treats!
But I must admit I loved those mornings. All the kids hugging in tight for the end of year class photograph, with banter and “in jokes” memories from a year of hanging out together. The excitement that the year is over mixed with the nervous energy of wondering what next year will bring.
I have this one photo of my middle girl Emma, crying her eyes out in her little smock and mortar board the kindy had dressed everyone up in for graduation. “what’s wrong sweetheart?” I asked, expecting her to say she was sad to leave all her friends and teachers. “I don’t like black! I want a pink hat!” she replied pleading through the sobs. It took me all my strength not to burst out laughing.
In 2018 I watched my eldest daughter graduate from high school, and I thought I’d never stop crying! An overwhelming mixture of pride for the woman she had become, sadness that she was all grown up and disbelief at how quickly the years had passed, in the chaos of parenthood. One thing I know for sure (thanks Oprah) is that you need to truly take in all of those special milestones. Find a way to pull your mind away from the craziness of life and really be present in those moments of celebration. It sounds easy enough but it’s not always that simple.
Amazing End of School Year Cake Ideas
So, this year I’ve created a range of DIY Cake Kits that are perfect for a range of celebrations from:
- Kindergarten Graduation cakes
- End of year class party cakes
- School graduation cakes
- Teacher gift cakes
I’ve made all of our end of school year cake kits message cakes. That way when you capture the pictures of the day, you can have the graduation year or class name or teacher name on the cake. A fabulous way to personalise the cake to suit your celebration.
Crayon End of School Year Cake Kit
Our Crayon Cake DIY Cake Kit is perfect for kindy, prep or early school years graduations and I had so much fun making it. Someone in our gorgeous Facebook Group Community requested this style of cake and it was just too cute to resist creating!! It’s actually the perfect craft party DIY cake kit and 100 days of prep party cake too.
Here’s a little video of me showing how to make the crayons, they are the showstopper and really easy to make.

Classroom DIY Cake Kit
This DIY Classroom Cake was inspired by my obsession with our existing Bookworm Cake. I loved the idea of a teacher’s pet cake style. I am so in love with the little worm on that cake that I decided he’d look super cute on an apple!!
This one’s great as an end of year class party cake, school graduation cake or a best teacher cake or teacher thankyou cake. The worm is really easy to make. Check out my demo video to show just how easy it is for you to create with the DIY kit and instructions.

Bookworm Graduation Cake Kit
The last option is our Bookworm Graduation DIY Cake Kit. I created this one last year and it was super popular. You can adapt all the colours and message to suit the age of the kids and the celebrations. Making it a perfect cake for older kids too.
