Step 1

Use small rose cutter from set to cut 90 flowers; make extras to allow for breakage (reserve excess gum paste). Let dry in large Flower Forming Cups (make extra drying cups by pressing Foil Wraps in Forming Cups). Brush with lilac purple Pearl Dust. Using square tipped brush and purple Color Dust, brush darker outer edges. Attach three Sugar Pearls to center using dots of royal icing.

Roll out 24 oz. white Gum Paste. Cut and make 120 flowers as above but brush with white Pearl Dust only. Also: Make monogram. Roll reserved violet Gum Paste into 1/2 in. diameter log. Shape letter and let dry on cornstarch dusted board. Brush with lilac purple Pearl Dust. Attach two Lollipop Sticks to back using melted candy; allow 3 in. of stick to extend at bottom to insert into cake.

Step 3

Bake and cool 2-layer round cake and 90 cupcakes. Prepare and cover 6 in. cake with rolled fondant. Pipe tip 5 bead bottom border using buttercream. Ice cupcakes with tip 2A swirl. Position flowers.

Step 4

At reception: Assemble cake stand using tall pillars. Position cupcakes and round cake on stand. Insert monogram. Attach white flowers to stand using melted candy.
