SHOTLIST:WRTV - COURTESY WRTVZionsville, Indiana1. SOUNDBITE (English) Carol Gambrel, Mother of Graduate: I went in to get a graduation cake for my daughter because we weren't actually doing a party so I thought well maybe we should at least have a cake and make it kind of funny with her face on it. So I went in to order the graduation cake and the guy--a young man taking my order--said oh do you want a diploma and I said oh sure and how do you want it decorated, I said school colors and it should say congratulations Laura and then I thought maybe it would be funny if they drew a little graudation cap on it and said could you draw a cap on the head?2.

SOUNDBITE (English) Carol Gambrel, Mother of Graduate: When I went to get the cake it was kind of covered over and I thought oh they did try to draw something and then I thought that doesn't look like a mortar board and I had her cut the box open and when I saw it was a cat, I just died laughing, I couldn't compose myself. I was laughing so hard.6. Shot of cake5. SOUNDBITE (English) Carol Gambrel, Mother of Graduate: I just thought it was so funny, this is a one of a kind cake, it's not just a boring kind with a graduation hat.
