Making a Graduation Cap

21 Mar

I am posting this info for Sam, she is a 17 yr old who is very interested in Cake Decorating and she is going to create a Graduation Cap for her gradation this May, so I am posting a few pics to guide her in doing this, as well as anyone else who is interested!

I took a Styrofoam ball and cut it in half then covered it  in fondant as well as both side of the cardboard….if you would like for the cap to be edible, you can use rice krispy treats formed into a half ball shape instead of using Styrofoam.

Here is the Graduation Cap all assembled….to glue the pieces together, just use a paint brush with water……

This is the play doh fun factory which is an easy way to create the tassel for the graduation cap…...

      Alright. I got my fondant and cutters and I’ve been researching storage but just keep finding storing actual fondant. Okay. So I’m making mini caps out of rice krispie treats and of course fondant. I have to do it on Thursday though because I won’t have time on Friday, the day I graduate, and will be sleeping all day Saturday until my party. So I was wondering… How do I store the premade graduation caps so they don’t get ruined and the humidity doesn’t effect the fondant? If it makes a difference, I’m using Duff Goldman buttercream fondant.

        Sam I would just put your graduation caps in a box, I use a bakery box and then just place them in a cool place….they should be just fine!
