In advance: Prepare floor, countertop and seats. Tint 12 oz. fondant black, 6 oz. gray. To make floor, cut two cake boards to 18 1/2 x 9 1/2 in., tape together and wrap with foil.
Roll out 12 oz. black and 12 oz. white fondant 1/8 in. thick and cut tiles using medium square Cut-Out. You will need approximately 30 black and 30 white tiles; cut 4 at a time and attach in alternating fashion to board which has been lightly brushed with Piping Gel.
Make countertop. Cut a cake board to 17 x 5 1/2 in.; wrap with foil. Lightly brush board with Piping Gel and cover with white fondant. Roll out gray fondant and cut 3/4 in. wide strips; attach to each countertop edge with Piping Gel.
To make seats: For posts, cut 4 lollipop sticks to 2 3/4 in. long, lightly brush with Piping Gel and cover with gray fondant. For base, cut gray fondant circle with large end of tip 1A . Make a hole in center of base with lollipop stick.
