My boyfriend will be graduating from the Georgia State Patrol Trooper School on March 7, and I want to make him a cake like this one to celebrate! How would you go about making the hat??? Any and all suggestions welcome. Thank you!!!

I would cover a cake board in black/grey fondant for the brim. Then use either a 1/2 ball mold (if the appropriate size) or stack the size cakes you want and carve a rounded top to them (I hope that makes sense). You can carve slight indents for the detailing on the hat (where it looks pushed in). Cover with the same fondant as on the cake board/brim.


Hope that helps or at least sparks some ideas for you.

Good luck!
