Two days in advance: Make flowers. Add 1 tablespoon Gum-Tex to 24 oz. fondant. Tint 4 oz. portions light pink, light violet and light orange. Tint 3 oz. portions dark pink, dark violet and dark orange. Tint a 2 oz. portion green and 1 oz. yellow. Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick. Following Cut & Press directions, make 9 pink, 9 violet and 10 orange 2-tone flowers, 28 yellow centers and 52 medium leaves. Let flowers dry in cornstarch-dusted Forming Cups. Dry centers and leaves on cornstarch-dusted cake boards.
Also: Prepare stems. Cut 26 sticks to 6 1/2 in. and 1 stick to 5 1/2 in. Gently curve two 6 1/2 in. sticks by bending slightly against table edge. Mix green, yellow and white-white colors with lemon extract. Brush all cut lollipop sticks and one 8 in. stick with mixture and let dry on waxed paper-covered board.
