I have seen lots of cute cupcakes with little fondant graduation caps on them, I know that the tops are just cut out squares and the tassels seem to be buttercream but what I can't figure out is the bottom part of the graduation cap that sits on your head, is it hollow or is it a solid piece? I am doing cupcakes for my daughter's class and thought this would just be perfect. Thank you in advance for all of your help.

you can use, dont know what there called, but little chocolate peanut butter cups for the base and then a chocolate covered cookie for the top. there might be one in my pictures, not sure, its on a cupcake graduation owl, if not pm me and i will see if i can find it. its pretty cute for the younger kids.

You can also cut a piece of fondant about an inch to an inch and a half wide and how however long you would like. Make a circle and glue end together with vanilla or fondant glue I call it and let dry and glue square on top and you have a grad cap. Kind of like the trinkets boxes from wilton.

Thank you guys for all of the help, I tested out the caps using all fondant but decided that the kindergartners might just pitch them and not eat them so I am going all buttercream with them and doing the little caps for a graduation party cake later. icon_biggrin.gif
