Stacked books covered in fondant, graduation cap made from 1/2 of the Wilton Sports Ball cake pan. Square top to the grad cap made from gum paste (made about a week early to let it dry HARD). Tassel was made by using an extruder. Just a tip- the Fondarific brand fondant does not dry hard enough for the top of the grad cap. I made a square from regular white gum paste and then covered the hardened square in the black Fondarific fondant. :)
