I used several ideas from this site, to create my own version of the graduation cap cake. I baked the rounded part of the cap in a pyrex mixing bowl, then baked a sugar cookie in a big square, and let it get really hard. I then iced it all to look like a graduation cap. I was a little worried about the coloring, the school colors are gold and burgundy. Burgundy is very difficult to achieve in icing coloring!
