SO I am going to make a 3D grad cap for Saturday. My plan is to cover a cake board in fondant for the top and make the bottom of cake. Do you think that baking cake in a bowl would give it a good looking base? I am thinking either my small batter bowl from Pampered Chef or a small stainless steel bowl.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

When I made my graduation cap (still haven't uploaded any of my pics yet) I just stacked two 8s and cut them using a slight angle. I prefer this over the bowl look, but thats my preference and a bowl will look nice as well. Good luck!

I used a small pyrex bowl that I covered in fondant and then placed it on a sheet cake with the foam core mortar bd the cap (bowl shape and board) were covered in fondant and the cake buttercream.

I just did one also. I too just stacked my round 8" cakes and gave them a slight carving. It gave me enough of a flat surface to put the board for the top too. It traveled well.

I used the large wonder mold (for doll cakes) worked great top is even flat to put the covered cardboard with tassel

I also used two 8" rounds, carved. For the top a made a big 10 x 10 sugar cookie and let it get hard then iced it.

Good Idea about the cookie!!!! Not sure if I will have time for that. Do you think this would feed 15?
