I'd do the dome base of the hat in rkt and the ears from gumpaste/fondant blend shaped over a styrofoam ball. This is a cute little cake, think I'll try it for my niece's bday.

Rice Krispie treats icon_rolleyes.gif yum! I've found rkt are great to add to any cake so many people are on gluten free diets.

I made mine out of the rice krispie treats too, then covered it in fondant. I even made the ears out of the rkt. I put three toothpicks in the bottom of the ears so I could push it into the top. Moisten the bottom of the ear to act as glue. That also helps keep them in place.

You could use gumpaste. I made a hat shape one by forming the gumpaste around a the inverted bottom small greased bowl

Boy do I feel silly!!! Lol!!! Thanks! RKT (Look how cool I am now that I actually know what that stands for icon_wink.gif ) would work great! That way it's completely edible! icon_smile.gif

Any tips on how to make the fondant smooth when putting it over rkt???
