I make these every summer when my boys play baseball. We bring them as a treat to one game a season! I make them whatever color the boys hats are that season. I also use white candy melts to trace out the team logo and put that on the front too! They are so much fun and the kids just flip! The other team usually is pretty jealous too, they always come and peek to see what I have!
For the brim I do a square, just barely elongated, with a rounded edge and insert it into the cupcake almost half way, right under the dome part. I usually cut a slit with a knife and then insert it, curved side out. Also, wait until you know the fondant brim is completely dry. If it's not it will wilt on you when you put them in a container.
I will continue making these every year! Huge Hit!

I made this baseball cap cake for my dad's birthday. I star piped it and put his team's logo on it. (He loved the Baltimore Orioles)
