Using firm-textured pound cake batter, bake and cool mini bear and 1-layer oval cake. Ice top of oval cake smooth in white and sides in yellow. Pipe tip 6 bead top and bottom borders. Prepare bear cake, cutting cake board into a 2 1/2 in. circle and cutting hole in center of board for umbrella handle. Trim left arm and ears off cake. With spatula, build up icing on head to resemble duck. Cover duck with tip 16 stars; add tip 16 pull-out star feathers for wings and crest on head. Pipe tip 3 string mouth and dot eyes (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Outline beak with tip 4; build up and overpipe beak with tip 4.

To make candy shells: Fill pan or mold to top edge with melted candy. Tap on counter to remove air bubbles. Let chill in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes or until a 1/4 in. shell has formed. Pour out excess candy, smooth top edges with spatula and chill for 15-20 minutes longer. Carefully unmold shells (if you have difficulty removing shells, place in freezer for 2-3 minutes, then unmold). Excess candy can be reheated and used again.
