Step 1

4 days in advance: Make cones. Using compass, trace the following circles on paper: five each 5 1/4 in., 4 3/4 in., 4 1/4 in. and 2 1/4 in. dia.; four each 3 3/4 in., 3 1/4 in., 2 3/4 in. and 1 3/4 in. dia. Cut out circles, retaining one of each size to use as patterns. Roll remaining circles into cones; tape edges. Tint gum paste blue; roll out 1/16 in. thick. Using circle patterns, cut a gum paste circle for each paper cone (cut extras to allow for breakage). Roll gum paste circles into cones; secure edges with damp brush. Let dry overnight on matching size paper cones dusted with cornstarch.

Using royal icing, pipe tip 2 scrolls on cones. Let dry. Paint scrolls with gold Pearl Dust/lemon extract mixture. Carefully remove paper cones.
