I think the entire hat is cake...the bottom layers (black) are tapered/carved in to meet the smaller top layers (yellow).
So all you'd have to do is set a cake board (the size of the smaller rounds) in the center of the larger rounds and carve in using both cake boards (top and bottom) as a guide...
 
I hope that makes sense?

yep.  That's all cake carved/tapered.  Possibly, though, you could bake the cake in a bowl if you had something that shape . . .

AYes, it makes sense Flourpots. Thanks for your help! Leah s , I like your idea and I thought about baking the brim in a bowl but i thought it would be too curvy . Would probably have to trim it so it could have the tapered (defined slope) look as pictured.
