so im scheming ideas and i know that i want to use half the wilton sports ball pan for the cap but now i have no clue what to do about the mortar board. can i use a square cake and cut it thin?i would rather it be edible....any suggestions please help me!
Cake or even rice krisipie treats would probably droop, and chocolate would probably squish the cake underneath, as it would be quite heavy.
I'm not much help am I, since you want it to be edible.
But...If you might change your mind. You could make a smaller gumpaste mortar board and place it on top of a cake. That way you'd have an edible cake, and the gumpaste mortar board could be kept as a keepsake. Good idea???
Pic of what I'm talking about is is on the first link if you're interested. Second link has a template for the mortar board that's on the cake.
Well, this isn't a 100% edible suggestion, but it is how I make mine. I use foam core and cover it with fondant that I added some tylose to.
I recently made two graduation cakes, with motorboards, I used rice krispie treats that I molded in a small bowl, then covered in ganache and fondant. For the top I cut a piece of fondant in the appropriate sized square and let it sit out a week to get hard. Then I glued it on the top with some canache.
Here are my examples
thanks so much for all yalls help! i would be so lost without this website and guidance from the pros!
