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.
