I am making a cake in the shape of a panama hat in late June, and I'm having a hard time figuring out what might help give me the texture I need. I'll be working with a fondant/candy clay mix (and gumpaste for the brim), and the color I'll be using is a burnt orange. The orange hat in the picture is the one I'll be making, just with a bit deeper orange. This cake is going to get a lot of attention and I want it to be perfect, any help would be greatly appreciated!
