HELP!!!!!!!! I told a friend I would make a grooms cake for her sisters wedding in a couple weeks, they want a NY Yankees baseball cap, I didn't think it out be that difficult, but now I am freaking out! Any suggestions on how to make one would be great... I looked at a couple of different ways and they all seem complicated, I need a tried and true way to make it... no time for me to make mistakes! ugh.. any help is appreciated! Thanks friends
I have a yankees cap in my photos, I used a round pyrex bowl to bake the cake in or you can use the Wilton ball pan, half of course and then I just cut out of cardboard the actual bill copied from my sons cap. I just covered the cardboard with fondant and placed it partly under and stuck into the cake. I just made the lines and the stitches and all the little details. HTH
I made mine just a two layer sheet cake but decorated with the cap and ball on top I made the cap and ball out of rkt and covered with a little bc and then fondant. I just looked at one of my dh caps and shaped the rkt like it. I put straws into the cake and sat the cap and ball on plastic cut from a clean water jug and sat the whole thing on the straws HTH
I baked the cake using the ball pan, filled and covered in fondant. For the front part I used my son's hat as a guide, I cut up a pattern and used it to shape the fondant. Used tissues underneath to shape it until it got dry, then attached it to the hat with royal icing. Here's mine, HIH.
