Step 1

In advance: Make fondant waves. Add 1 teaspoon Gum-Tex to 10 oz. tinted fondant; roll out 1/8 in. thick. Use patterns to cut 20 small waves (four 5 1/2 in. wide, eight each 4 and 3 in. wide in various shapes) and 4 large waves. Let dry on cornstarch-dusted surface. Paint on swirled details using white and blue Pearl Dust mixed with lemon extract.

Step 2

Also: Make fondant cabin and windows. Tint 4 oz. fondant lime green (reserve 2 oz. green for railings), 2 oz. yellow. Add 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex to each. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Use patterns to cut cabin side and roof. Tint 2 oz. fondant dark violet. Roll out 1/16 in. thick. Cut a 1 x 1 3/4 in. top window, each 1 1/2 x 2 in., and a 1/4 x 6 1/4 in. strip to edge roof. Attach with damp brush. Let dry. Reserve remaining dark violet. Attach roof to wall using Thinned Fondant Adhesive. Attach 2 lollipop sticks to back of wall, allowing 2 in. to extend at bottom to insert into cake. Let dry.

Step 3

And: Make fondant animals on waxed paper-covered boards. Attach monkeys to window.

Step 4

Bake and cool 2-layer cakes. Prepare for Stacked Construction and rolled fondant. Tint 51 oz. fondant blue, 24 oz. yellow. Cover cakes and board with rolled fondant. Stack cakes on prepared board. Roll out reserved dark violet fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut 4 windows 1 1/2 x 2 in.; attach to cake sides with damp brush. Use toothpicks to mark position for 3 stripes on cake sides; begin 3/4 in. down from top edge and mark stripes 3/4 in apart. Mark cabin wall for 7 vertical stripes, 1/2 in. apart. Roll out yellow fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut 1/8 in. wide strips and attach over marks using damp brush. Attach waves around cakes using fondant adhesive; insert 1/4 in. diameter fondant logs as spacers between sections for layered effect. Roll out reserved lime green 1/8 in. thick. Cut two 1/2 x 13 in. strips with rounded ends for railing; attach around cake using fondant adhesive. Position cabin and insert animals.
