There's plenty of graduation cap cutters out there that have become rather ordinary.
I wanted to create a unique graduation cap that would be fairly simple for anyone to cut.
I ordered my long rectangle from Ecrandal (it's 5" by 2")
Use a larger diamond cutter to to give the cap it's shape.
And then just rolled a bit of dough into an oval and add to the top of the cap for a button.
Easy peasy..... :)
Outline and flood the bottom part (skull cap) in black 10-second glaze.
Once it's dried for 30+ minutes, flood the "mortarboard".
And finally, outline and flood the "button" on the top.
And then to make them more authentic and much more interesting,
For a cute presentation, package the two cookies together in the same bag. :)
