Want to learn how to make a simple cowboy or cowgirl hat? In a matter of a few simple steps, you will learn how to make these cute, adorable hats.
This is what I used:
Brown and black fondant
circle cutter (2 sizes)
Flower former (not shown in picture)
two other modelling tools (not shown in picture) – but will be used for drying purposes
Roll out the brown fondant thinly. Using the largest circle cutter make a cut.
Using the ball tool, thin the edges of the big circle.
Place circle onto a flower former as shown in picture above.
Roll out the brown fondant to half an inch thick. Using the small circle cutter make a cut. In the picture above you can see how thick to make the small cut.
After cutting the small thick circle, press the top flat so that there is no bulge on top. Taking one of your modelling tools press it in the middle of the small circle creating an indent on the top of the circle. This will create the top of the hat.
Taking the large circle that is drying in the former, grab two modelling tools and place the semi-dry fondant circle in between the two tools. The tools will help to keep the edges rolled up. This is creating the base of the hat.
Apply some gum glue onto the large circle in the center and then place the small circle on top.
Roll out some black fondant thinly. Using the Zacto knife cut some thin strips.
Apply some gum glue to the black strip. Place the black strip along the base of the top part of the hat. This will add some décor as well as hide the space where the two parts of the hat meets.
