Should I make the bill out of gumpaste, fondant, or a mixture of the two? I need it for Wednesday. I've traced the bill on my hubby's cap and have a large glass jar to form it over.
If I make it out of gumpaste can I put a thin layer of fondant over it so the bill and hat match? It is going to be a dark blue.

Any other suggestions would be welcome as well. This is going to be a fishing cap for my son-in-law's birthday.

I've only made a cap once. I covered a think piece of cardboard or cardstock with fondant tylose mixture. Gumpaste dries faster. You can mix the gumpaste and fondant, it will give you more time to work with it.

I like to do a 50/50 mix for stuff like that. I haven't done a base ball cap but the door of my 'steam punk ' cake is about the same curve and thats how I made it.

Thank you so much for the info. I had typed in "How to make a baseball cap" in the search and didn't come up with anything.

I have made 2 baseball hats now and I use a 50/50 mix. I form mine over a card board that i shaped just like my hubbys hats. I tried to form it over a cup and the brim was way too high it looked odd! hth

I made a cake with a baseball cap and I used 100% gumpaste. It dries quickly.
