  • Welcome to HowToCookThat I am Ann Reardon and today we are making Carl's hat from The

  • Walking Dead.

  • It was actually Rick's hat but he pulled the Sheriff badge off and gave it to his son.

  • Rick: "Since you're in the club now you get to wear the hat."

  • To make this cake you will need a double quantity of my rich chocolate cake, baked in 4 8" tins

  • and leveled.

  • If you just use something that is a good height and rest your knife on it and cut across it

  • makes it easy to do that.

  • I'll link you to the video of how to make that cake and I'll put all the details of

  • everything you need for this cake on the howtocookthat.net website, there is a link just below.

  • You will also find the template for carving the cake there and the recipe for my buttercream.

  • For Carl's hat I am using a double batch of basic buttercream mixed with some melted dark

  • chocolate.

  • This gives it a beautiful flavour but it also helps make the frosting a little bit firmer

  • so it's easier to work with.

  • Tape four pieces of paper together then fold that in half along the join, and then in half

  • again the other way.

  • Now take one side and bring it across to line up with the other side and then fold that

  • down pushing it nice and flat.

  • Place your template piece on the top, lining it up with the point.

  • Then simply cut along the line using some sharp scissors.

  • Once you're done unfold it and this is the size of the rim of the hat.

  • So choose a cake board that allows for that size cake with a bit of spare room around

  • it.

  • Now put a little bit of frosting on the board to stop the cake slipping and add your first

  • cake.

  • Now you want to brush that with simple syrup, this helps keep the cake moist when we carve

  • it.

  • Smother the top of the cake in our delicious chocolate frosting.

  • And then repeat that stacking up the other three cakes on top.

  • Place the side of cake template in front of the cake and line up the straight edge with

  • one side of the stack.

  • Follow the line and cut off the top of the cake.

  • Turn the cake 90 degrees so you can see the front and place the front template next to

  • the cake.

  • Cut off a triangle off one side just following the line there.

  • Then cut a little wedge from the middle on the angle shown and then a triangle from the

  • other side.

  • That gives us a pretty nice basic shape across the top but the corners make the hat still

  • look a little bit box shaped.

  • Take your knife and shave off a little at a time to round out those corners of the hat.

  • That looks good.

  • Now if you look at the main template you'll see the rim isn't actually sitting flat, it

  • starts up a bit and comes down flat towards the edge.

  • Take your rim template and fold it up again and then just cut off a piece from the middle,

  • so that when you unfold it you can place it over the cake to see where that sits.

  • I suggest that you draw yourself a little guide line so you know where it is.

  • Take the cake that we cut off the top of the hat before when we were doing the side and

  • cut that in half.

  • And then use your knife to cut out a curve so that it fits snugly against the body of

  • the hat.

  • Now use a finely serrated knife to slope that down from the where it joins the hat to the

  • cake board.

  • For each side of the hat use the triangle piece that we cut off.

  • We don't want the sides to come as far out from the hat as the front and back do because

  • the sides of the hat curl up.

  • So trim it off to the same height as the others and down on a slightly sharper slope.

  • Then cover the whole thing in chocolate buttercream smoothing the slope down the the board and

  • neatening it up.

  • To make the leather, take some white fondant and cut it into cubes and some dark chocolate.

  • Warm the fondant in the microwave until it is soft like this.

  • Then melt the chocolate in the microwave.

  • And then put both of those into a mixer bowl and using a dough hook mix them together and

  • you'll need to add about one tablespoon of water as it mixes.

  • You can do this by hand but as you can see it is quite messy so it's easier to do in

  • a mixer.

  • Now because the chocolate in this will set, you have to work with this quite quickly while

  • it is still warm.

  • So if you are new to cake decorating I suggest you just use brown fondant - but this tastes

  • much better.

  • You can't really use modeling chocolate because it doesn't dry out so it's not going to hold

  • the shape of the rim of the hat

  • Roll it out your chocolate fondant on a silicone mat.

  • It needs to be quite a bit bigger than the rim template because the fondant has to go

  • up and over the middle part of the hat of course, it's not just flat.

  • Carefully lift it up and place it over the cake smoothing it down.

  • I like the look of this chocolate fondant that we've made because it looks a bit rough

  • like old leather.

  • If you want perfectly smooth fondant that's easier to work with then definitely just use

  • brown food colouring in your fondant but I'm quite happy with how this turned out.

  • It was just an experiment and I think it's worked quite well.

  • Place the rim template over the top, cut all the way around the edge of the template.

  • Then remove the excess fondant.

  • Now if you look at the guide, the hat curls up on the side and it has a chunk missing

  • on one side as well.

  • Cut out a little triangle for our missing bit.

  • Then loosen underneath the rim on the sides.

  • Slide some baking paper underneath and then bend it up at the side.

  • And then use something like paper towel to support it in place.

  • Then using the palms of your hands indent the sides of the hat in the centre just below

  • the peak.

  • And then shape it a bit more around where the rim joins the hat so it is clear where

  • that cord will sit.

  • For the hole where the sheriff badge used to be, roll a little ball of black and squash

  • it flat using your finger.

  • And then use a straw to cut the middle out of it.

  • Brush it with silver luster dust using a paint brush and then add it into place on the cake

  • and then use the paintbrush to gently push it off the straw.

  • Now take a cake pop stick and push it into the centre to make a hole.

  • For the cord I'm using a fondant extruder, you can roll a long snake by hand but you

  • can get these fondant extruders pretty cheaply now days and they save a lot of time.

  • Add one layer of cord around the hat, just joining at the back.

  • Then add another layer on top of that criss-crossing the left-over bit across at the front and

  • leaving some excess hanging down.

  • Now make an oval of black, cut it to flatten it on one side and push it over the join in

  • the centre.

  • roll ball of black, flatten it so it looks a bit like a bead and then indent it all the

  • way around with a knife.

  • Lift the cord off the hat using backing paper and add the bead to the end.

  • Repeat that process so you have two beads on each cord.

  • Take some gold luster dust mixed with lemon juice or alcohol and paint it over the black.

  • Now the reason we didn't just dust it on like we did with the silver is because we would

  • of ended up with gold on the leather part while we were putting the cord around the

  • hat.

  • To cover the cake board take some plain biscuits and process them to make sand.

  • After a few hours, the chocolate fondant will be completely cold and it will be firm so

  • you can remove the supports.

  • If you were using normal fondant for this you'd need to wait overnight.

  • Spread left over frosting on the board and then cover the whole thing in the biscuit

  • crumbs.

  • To make the sheriff's badge find a toy one, put blue tac on the back and push it down

  • firmly onto something flat.

  • Put a cookie cutter around it and fill that with reusable food grade molding gel.

  • This stuff is awesome, you can just re-melt it and re-use it and remelt it and make all

  • sorts of molds with it.

  • Once it is set you have your mold.

  • Pour the chocolate on top and tap it down to get rid of any air bubbles in the chocolate.

  • And then scrape it across the top so that you can see the edges of the badge, this is

  • so thin I think it's going to break as we take it out, but we can just fix it up later.

  • If you can find a chunkier toy badge then get one of those instead.

  • Once the chocolate is set, tip it out, and yes as I suspected it is breaking on the edges

  • as we get it out.

  • Just line up all those broken pieces and use a little bit of melted chocolate to add them

  • back on.

  • Brush the whole badge with gold luster dust and I know this is not exactly the same as

  • Rick's one but given that replicas were selling for $90 I didn't want to buy one just to make

  • a mold out of it.

  • Scoop up a little mound of 'sand' and place the badge over the top.

  • Cut the cake to reveal the beautiful rich moist chocolate cake.
