This was for a lovely young lady who has just completed a degree in Spanish and Maths!
It was an 8inch chocolate cake for the bottom, and then I used a 3D sports ball cake pan to make the actual hat part. (Again, it was chocolate cake!) And I covered a small square cake board in black sugarpaste for the top of the hat.
