I fancy having a go at making a baseball hat for my son's best friend and would appreciate any advice on how to do one.
Are there any templates for the brim and logo's as I put baseball cap on the search and only got pictures.Or does any one have any step by step instructions?
Thanks in advance,
Rosie

Thanks for replying.
I have asked for help because we do not posess a baseball cap that I could use as a guide and didn't really want to buy one. As it will be a suprise I didn't want to ask his friend for 1.
My problem is I do not have a ball pan so I hope to be able to use a pudding basin for the cap. If there were templates for the brim and logos' (he wears lots of different types) it would make things easier.

I made a Philadelphia Phillies baseball cap as the topper for my best friend's son's 13th birthday. Since my cap was the topper, I made it out of rice crispy treats (without butter) and pressed in bowl, then covered with fondant. I wanted the cap to look worn, so besides the stitch marks, etc., I used vodka and brown food coloring to add shading.

Jaime,
I love your cake and I like the look of the baseball cap, you did a fantastic job but I am looking to make the hat the cake as a small gift for my son to give his friend who is turning 15 this month. He is not having a party just a day out.
Thank you so much for taking the time to reply and for the link which may be of use for reference.I really appreciate it.
Rosie.
