Shape into a circle for base of cap; secure ends using damp brush. Reserve excess burgundy fondant for bow. For diploma, cut dowel rod to 4 in. long. Roll out 3 oz. white fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut a 4 x 3 1/2 in. strip. Wrap around dowel rod brushed with Piping Gel. Let pieces dry on cornstarch-dusted, waxed paper-covered board. Attach mortarboard to base with thinned fondant adhesive.
