In advance: Make candies. Use melted candy to mold 18 skull and crossbones candies. Tap to settle; chill until firm. Cut off pick areas. Also: Prepare base board. Tint fondant: 120 oz. blue, 24 oz. black. Roll out 1/8 in. thick as needed. Cover board with blue fondant. Cut 1 3/4 in. wide black strips; use damp brush to attach for border.
Bake and cool 1-layer cake (bake 9 in. round just 1 in. high). Position Soccer Ball on board for head. Cut Wonder Mold in half vertically; position half for upper body. Cut 9 in. round into 2 semi-circles; stack with icing and attach cut side down under Wonder Mold for lower body. Insert 2 pillars for legs, leaving 4 in. exposed; insert 2 pillars for arms, leaving 3 1/2 in. exposed.
Use patterns to mold fondant hands 1 in. thick and shoes 1 1/4 in. thick (flip patterns for opposite side). For parchment, tint 4 oz. fondant ivory (leave color slightly marbleized). Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut a 6 x 4 in. section with irregular edges, slight tears and ripples.
Push shoes and hands onto dowel rods; position parchment in 1 hand and fold fingers over. For bandana tie, roll out fondant 1/2 in. thick, cut 2 leaves using largest Cut-Out and 1 round using medium Cut-Out; attach to board using damp brush.
For ear, cut 1 round using medium Cut-Out; trim to fit curve of head and attach to board. Use medium round cutter to mark dots on scarf. Use pattern and tip 3 to outline and fill in eye patch; smooth with fingertip. Use tip 3 to outline and fill in eye and pupil; pat smooth. Pipe tip 3 outline mouth, eye patch string, shirt neckline and scarf edge.
