Tommy and Rachel's wedding

Here's the cake from my brother-in-law's wedding this past weekend. This based on a design the bride found. Reminds me of Cinderella's carriage. :o)

these are all so amazing- I would LOVE to come over next time you are working on one! (of course, I would be in the way and in day dreaming lala land the whole time, but still)

Hi Stephanie - I love your blog. I have been making cakes for several years, but nothing like the ones you make. I am trying to find a recipe or idea for a baseball cap. Do you have any suggestions.

Thanks

Stephanie

Brandy,
Wow, I'm flattered! To answer your question, first of all, I would use a nice dense cake that will hold up to the shape and fondant. For the shape I would use 1/2 a ball pan (plus another round underneath that has been tapered on the sides if you want it to be a taller hat). Then I would cover it in fondant. For the bill I would cut the shape out of cardboard and, after bending it into shape I would cover that with fondant and attach it to the cap. Then you can use a toothpick to make the stitching marks and any other accents. Here's a picture I found if that helps:

Hope that helps! Feel free to email me with any other questions you have!

Oh, and be sure to take out the spaces in the url. I can't get it to post on here without adding spaces for some reason.
