In advance, make bow loops and circles with gum paste. Roll gum paste 1/8 in. thin and cut 12 loops 1 1/2 in. wide x 6 in. long. Attach open ends of loops with gum paste adhesive; let dry on loop sides. Cut 1 of each size circle, let dry on cornstarch dusted board.
Tint gum paste violet and use forget-me-not cutter from set to cut 44 flowers (make extras to allow for breakage). Place cut flower on thick foam and cup with ball tool, let dry.
Bake and cool 2-layer cake and prepare for stacked construction. Ice in buttercream. Roll fondant 1/8 in. thick and cut 4 strips 2 in. wide x 12 in. long and attach to sides of iced cake. Pipe tip 4 bead bottom borders on all cakes and tip 3 dots along fondant strips. Attach flowers with tip 3 dots of icing.
