In advance: Make fondant hearts and bait bucket. For hearts, roll out all colors 1/8 in. thick; cut approximately 14 hearts using medium Cut-Out. Let dry on cornstarch-dusted board. For bucket, dust muffin pan cavity with cornstarch. Roll out white fondant mixture 1/8 in. thick; press into cavity, smoothing with fingers. Trim off excess and let dry; unmold. Using FoodWriter™ markers, print messages on hearts and buckets. Tint 30 oz. violet, 18 oz. blue, 1 oz. each yellow, rose and green. Add 1 teaspoon Gum-Tex to blue; add 1/8 teaspoon Gum-Tex each to 1 1/2 in. balls of violet and white fondant.
Bake and cool 2-layer oval and stand-up bear cakes (use firm-textured batter such as pound cake for bear) and prepare for stacked construction. Ice oval cake smooth in rose buttercream. For dock, roll out violet fondant 1/8 in. thick; using oval pan as a pattern, cut an oval approximately 1 in. larger overall. Position on cake; smooth with Fondant Smoother. For dock posts, cut 7/8 in. wide x 3 in. long strips; attach to cake sides, 2 1/2 in. apart, with damp brush. For water, roll out blue fondant 1/8 in. thick; cut 1 1/4 in. wide strip to fit around cake bottom border. Using a paring knife, cut waves along top edge. Attach with damp brush. On bear cake, trim off arm that touches mouth. For hands, roll out two 1 1/2 in. diameter balls of white fondant. Cut 2 lollipop sticks to 3 in. Insert 1 in. deep into hands then insert in arm areas on front of cake. Build up arms with tip 12. Using tip 4 and buttercream, pipe in nose, ears, and pads of feet (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Outline eyes and mouth with tip 3. Cover bear with tip 16 stars. For fishing pole, cut 12 in. of ribbon; tie into a bow at end of a lollipop stick. For fishing line, attach a heart to end of remaining ribbon with fondant adhesive; let dry. Tie onto stick leaving approximately 9 in. hanging.
