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.
heres some instructions from cake central
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.
