We’re going to make our baseball cap cake and for this I’ve already pre-layered a cake and it’s been in the refrigerator cooling so we can carve it out. I’m gonna round it out just a little bit on the top. You wanna go in maybe a half an inch or so and just cut it around the same size all the way just to give it a nice round top. And we’ll take that off, and then we’ll just continue it around and out. Wanted to get try to get this size closest to a life size baseball cap slightly a little bigger but that’s fine. Alright, and that should about do it. Gotten the excess crumbs off of here. We just want to add a little more butter cream and then we’ll set it back in the fridge while I prepare the fondant. Alright, we just want to smoothen that off a little bit. And we’ll set this in the fridge a couple of minutes while I prepare the fondant.
