Heya, I was just wondering how you make the flat but of the graduation hat!?

Like this beautiful cake icon_smile.gif
I know the person said the hat was cardboard covered with cloth, but is there any other ways of making this?
Thanks icon_smile.gif

I rolled out a flat piece of black fondant/gumaste mix about three days ahead of time and let it dry for the top of the hat. For the base, I turned a cupcake upsidedown and covered it with black fondant. I used a clay extruder for the string and tassels.

This is what I'd do too.

If you're looking for additional ideas, search for mortarboard or acedemic cap.

I did the same. Cut out a piece of back fondant and the another to shape as a ring for the "morter board" to sit on.

I used a small 1/2 ball pan for the base (you could use cake or rice krispy treats) and graham crackers for the top. Cover with fondant and place on your cake.
