I need help, I am making a graduation cap out of a 4" styrofoam ball I put some buttercream and put fondant over it and it looks like a brain with all the bumps, I don't know what else to use for a cap, any suggestions???
If you do it in cake, you could use the mini doll pan. I think it looks closest to the right shape
I've used modeling chocolate to make a graduation cap before and it worked great. It's in my photos.
I use a Pyrex mixing bowl to bake my grad cap cakes in. It is the perfect shape. Use 1 ply cardboard covered in fondant or MC for the mortarboard. See my last one in photos.
I have only done them in cake using the half-ball pan, the mini-ball pan & a large bowl. All worked very well for me. Sorry I cant help with the styrofoam.
I've done a couple themes cakes bugs, bras, etc. and I bake the cake in a small round bowl. It's really easy to cover them with fondant.
Wilton sports ball pan. Use only half to make the cap, it's the perfect size.
ok, thanks for the ideas!!
