How to make Graduation Caps

Step 1: Get a 1″x 1″ square cutter and cut a few pieces. This will be used for the top of the graduation caps.



Step 2: Cut 2 1/2″ x 3/4″ strips. This will be used as the base of the graduation caps.
Step 3: Roll up the fondant to create a ring. Brush a bit of water on one edge and connect the other edge. Set aside to dry.
Step 4: When the squares and the rolled up strips are all dry, stick the squares and strips together by brushing a bit of water on the top of the rolled up strips.

Step 5: Make a thin log about 2.5 inches long using the yellow fondant. Cut both edges to make the thickness of the log even. Then press your finger on on edge to make the edge flat. Then use an X-acto knife and slice the flat edge 4 times to make the tassel.
