Bake and cool 2-layer cakes. Prepare cakes for stacked construction. Prepare for covering with rolled fondant by lightly icing with buttercream. Cover both layers with white fondant. Smooth with Fondant Smoother. Cut off excess with knife.
Mix moss green icing color with pastel green fondant. For dark pink fondant mix white fondant with neon pink fondant. Dust silicone mold with cornstarch to prevent sticking. Press fondant into molds and roll over with small fondant roller. Use sharp knife greased with shortening to cut off excess fondant and remove from mold. Brush back of fondant lightly with piping gel and attach to cake.
