Step 1

1 day in advance: Make butterflies and dragonflies. Tint 5 oz. fondant each medium violet and medium yellow; knead 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex into each. Use mold to make 20 each butterflies and dragonflies. Let dry. Paint details using goldenrod (butterflies) or purple (dragonflies) Color Dust/lemon extract mixture in. Attach insects to 3 in. pieces of spaghetti using melted candy in cut parchment bag. Let set.

Step 2

Bake and cool two sheet cakes using firm textured batter, such as pound cake. Level to 1 1/2 in. high. Cut circles for 30 petit fours using knife and largest Cut-Out as a guide. Place on cooling grid over pan and cover with heated icing; let dry.

Step 3

Tint 8 oz. fondant dark green and 2 oz. light green. For treat sides, mold 120 leaves each large dark green and small light green; reserve remaining fondant. Place ferns under plastic wrap after molding to prevent drying. Attach four ferns in each size to sides of each treat using damp brush. Insert insects in treat tops. For stand, use reserved dark green fondant to mold four large and 14 medium ferns; use light green fondant to mold six tendrils. Before pieces dry, attach to stand using melted candy. Attach remaining butterflies and dragonflies randomly to stand.
