1 / 10 The UCC is offering a fresh start for its graduating class after the closure of a long-running business that provided the decorative products and services that adorned the university’s many halls and buildings.
The business, decorated decorating supplier, has been operating under the UCC since the 1980s and is now based in Perth.
UCC general manager of sales and marketing, John Dolan, said the new company would be able to sell the same decorations, but with a “new twist”.
“It’s a completely different approach,” Mr Dolan said.
“It doesn’t look like we are going to be selling these to anyone else.”
They are going on the shelf with us and we are selling them to students.
The decorating company was founded in 1986, and its main products include the colourful and embellished cakes, totes and other decorations used on graduation ceremonies, which can be purchased for about $400. “
We have all been very excited by what we have seen on our graduation day, and it has been a pleasure to work with the students to make it a successful business,” he said.

Mr Dlan said UCC students would have to buy a cake decorating kit to decorate their own wedding cakes.
He said the UCL and UCC would also continue to offer decorative items for students to decorating their own graduation ceremonies.
“All the decorations are being delivered to students, and they are being supplied to students as well,” Mr Sneddon said.
A UCC graduate, who did not want to be named, said there was no “goodbye cake” in sight.
“I’m not sure that I can imagine what we are leaving behind.
I can’t even imagine what I’m going to do for a cake,” he told Radio Australia’s Breakfast.
“The university is such a good place, but I just think that there will be a lot of changes in coming years.”
UCL students are expected to be able buy their own cake decorations, while UCC graduates are expected, after graduation, to be looking to the UCO and UCO-based decorating companies to decorure their own weddings.
UCOs and UCO are two of the leading suppliers to universities, and are known for their quality, durability and cost.
The UCO company, in the past, has said it had an agreement with UCL to provide decorative goods to students.
“UCC graduates will be able purchase these goods for $600 each,” Mr Ullrich said.
Mr Uhlrich said the company had “been in the business of selling cakes since the 1970s” and was “happy to work for the UCCC”.
“I am confident that students will be happy with the services we provide them,” he added.
“Our graduates will also be able choose from our products to create their own special day.”
UCC graduate and cake decorator, Kate O’Neill, said her cake decoration business was “not going to change”.
“We are going back to a traditional, handmade wedding cake and we have been doing this for 20 years,” Ms O’Nell said.
“There are some really great people at the UCT who are passionate about decorating, but we are still working in a traditional way.
She said her business was still growing, and she hoped students would continue to be encouraged to create a “great cake” after graduation.
UCO-related companies are expected in the coming months to introduce new products, such as wedding cakes with “decorative features” that are “designed and produced by local artists and designers”.
UCC General Manager of Sales and Marketing, John Egan said the move was not a “massive” change for UCC’s graduates, but would benefit students.

We have had some changes in the supply chain in the last couple of years but we don’t anticipate that to change for any of our graduates,” he explained.

It will be the UCP who provide the “decoration” of a wedding cake, not UCC, and the UCA who provide decorating services for students.
”The UCO is going to take the cake from the cake decorators,” Mr Egan explained.
