My father is a big Texas Ranger Baseball fan so I decided to make him a baseball hat birthday cake for his birthday.

This turned out to be a very simple cake, I took two 8 inch round cakes and sculpted very slightly to make the shape of the hat, then covered it in fondant. I used my fondant embossing tool to make the stitching, used two different icing tips to make the sweat holes and made a template for the T and the bill of the hat.

For the bill I mixed fondant and gumpaste and cut it out in the shape to fit the cake and attached it with a little bit of clear vanilla. I also added a couple of cupcakes decorated like baseballs to top it off. He was excited to see how real it looked.
