MSU Cake Designs

Congratulations on your achievements! Mayville State would like to help you celebrate at your graduation party. Use the files below to create your own cupcake pennants or take cake designs to your favorite bakery to have them printed on your quarter sheet cake. Be sure to use the Cake Usage Release form with you to the bakery (the usage release allows you to use only these designs).

Cupcake Pennant Files

Just print, cut and attach to tooth picks or sandwich picks.  Glue sticks work best to adhere to picks.
