Hello everyone! Please help.
My client has asked me to make a boston red sox cake. I would like to make a baseball cap. Or at least try it first and then see if a i can do it.
Can someone please help me as to HOW do I go about doing this? \\
Thank you kindly!
I don't have a picture of mine but all I did was bake a cake in a pyrex bowl and used a 8 inch round cut in half for the brim. You might have to shape the round cake a little instead of cutting it straight. HTH
another hint is to put lots of buttercream under fondant - then you can mush it around to make it look like fabric. There is a picture in my galleries of a cap on a field with a baseball....
First of all - GO SOX!!
Second - I have a few caps in my gallery. Make the brim a few days to a week in advance if you can, but I have done it in as little as 2 days. I covered a real cap in plastic and used it to form the shape and let it dry on the cap.
I use 8" round pans, double layer and I carve them down while looking at a real cap.
A GREAT resource is Confetti Cakes by Elisa Strauss - she has a cap cake in there that shows step by step.
