I have 10 ball cap cakes I have to make by April 17th. The cake tops are made, frosted, and frozen. About 1 week ago I made the brims all of fondant, placed on actual cap brims. When I was checking on them-most of them broke. They were over 1/8 in thick, but not 1/4 inch. So I remade all of them thinner. (They collasped in the center as when I picked them up the weight caved them in.) Now all the new brims are thinner. I have studied several tutorials on making these and have Confetti Cakes. She used gumpaste, but others have used fondant. I originally had plastic wrap under the brim, but slid a piece of paper over that. This is a very formal occasion I am making these for. Could someone give me any suggestions about the actual brims? I have thought about after I attach these to place some wax paper under them. They are sooo fragile. I want the people that receive these to be able to get home with them without the brim breaking . Any suggestions for brim support? Thanks for you help.
