Several days in advance, make candy pacifier; set aside.
In advance, make 10 candy faces: Tint 1 cup melted candy light pink, 1 tablespoon of each black and dark pink.
Mold faces in cavities of melting tray; refrigerate until firm; unmold. Pipe eyes with black candy in cut parchment bag.
Make pacifiers and bows on parchment paper: For pacifiers, separately pipe disks and hollow circles 3/8 in. diameter.
Refrigerate until firm; remove paper. Attach pacifier pieces with candy, let harden, then attach to faces. Attach bows to girls.
Ice 2-layer oval cake smooth, 1/2 in. thick on sides. Using pink blades, immediately comb sides with Icing Sculptor. Cut hidden pillars to height of cake and position in cake.

Cut hidden pillars to the height of the cake, and position on cake in area where candy pacifier will sit.
