Additional Information

Step 1

In advance: Make fondant cap, scroll and curls. For cap, tint 16 oz. fondant dark brown combined with a little red-red. Roll out 1/8 in. thick, trace pattern with toothpick and cut out. For scroll, roll out white fondant 1/8 in. thick, trace pattern and cut out. Cut a 3/4 in. wide dark brown strip for ribbon and attach with damp brush. Using veiner tool from Confectionery Tool Set, score line on cap and folds on scroll. For tassel, tint 2 oz. fondant light brown and make a 1/8 x 2 in. long rope. For fringe, cut a 1 x 1 1/2 in. rectangle, then cut thin slits, stopping 1/8 in. from edge. Wrap fringe around rope. Attach to cap with damp brush. For button, roll a 1/4 in. dark brown ball; flatten and attach with damp brush. Reserve all leftover dark brown fondant for cake stripes and board. Let cap and scroll dry on cornstarch-dusted board. When dry, attach lollipop stick to back with melted candy, leave 3 in. at bottom to insert in cake. Let set. To make approximately 72 curls (see below), add 3 teaspoons of Gum-Tex to 48 oz. of white fondant; knead well.

Step 2

Prepare 2-layer cakes for stacked construction; prepare for rolled fondant by lightly icing with buttercream. Cover cakes with fondant; smooth with Easy-Glide Smoother. For striped side panels, make colors as follows: for light brown, combine a 1 in. ball of dark brown with 10 oz. of white fondant; for medium brown, combine a 1 1/2 in. ball of dark brown with 8 oz. of white fondant. To make stripes, cut panels to match hexagon side measurements, and alternating 1/8 in. wide dark brown strips with 1/4 in. wide medium and light brown strips. Attach to cake with damp brush, trimming to fit as needed and using Smoother to blend seams. Use excess fondant to make additional colored fondant if needed.

Step 3

Cut a triple-thick cake board to accommodate cake with a bottom layer of curls. Add white fondant to reserved brown fondant to make approximately 48 oz. of medium brown. Cover prepared board with fondant; smooth with Easy-Glide Smoother. Position cakes; attach curls with melted candy. Insert cap and position scroll.

Step 4

Curls

Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick and cut approximately 72 strips, 1 x 7 in. Roll strips in loose curls, leaving flat surfaces open and giving some longer uncurled tails. Let dry on side, on cornstarch-dusted board. Curls will be attached to cake and board with melted candy.
