ACan anyone help with making the mortar board part of a grad cap cake:)? Saw examples you tube and they look droopy.
I can think of two options:
1. Roll out thick black fondant & gumpaste mix (50/50), cut a square for the mortarboard. Let dry. I would do this about a wk before to make sure it dries completely.
2. Cover a cardboard square in fondant. Make sure the fondant covers enough of the bottom that you won't see cardboard when looking at the cake. Would also do this ahead of time.
I made a small one for a topper of a cake and used the first method. To adhere it to the hat, I used melted chocolate. hth
I have done the cardboard option twice. Works great.
The above suggestions are great. Want to make the whole thing edible? Instead of cardboard use a Matzoh - I've used that as a lid covered in fondant before too. Obviously it depends on your size
I made mine , using the fondant and g/p mixture. I made 2, just to be safe. Learned this from Sharon Zambito!!!
