Step 1

2 to 3 days in advance: Make fondant snowflakes. Add 3/4 teaspoon Gum-Tex to 6 oz. white fondant. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut snowflakes: one using largest cutter from set, 12 using smallest cutter from set. Let dry 24 hours on cornstarch dusted, parchment-covered boards.

Step 2

Decorate snowflakes with gray royal icing.

For large snowflake, pipe tip 3 straight and angled lines; use tip 2 to outline and fill in diamond accents; pat smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch.

For small snowflakes, pipe tip 2 straight lines; use tip 1 for angled lines and to outline and fill in diamonds; pat smooth.

Let dry 24 hours. Use fine tip brush to paint snowflake details with silver Pearl Dust/lemon extract mixture. Let dry. Use fondant adhesive to attach lollipop stick to back of large snowflake; leave 5 in. extended at bottom to insert into cake.

Step 3

Bake and cool 3-layer 6 in. square (trim one layer to 1 in. for a 5 in. high cake) and 1-layer 8 in. square. Tint 3 oz. each light green and dark green. Prepare and cover cakes with red or white fondant; reserve excess red fondant. Prepare for stacked construction.

Step 4

For plaid lines, roll out fondant colors 1/16 in. thick. Cut approximately 16 strips of each: 1/8 in. wide and 1/2 in. wide x 10 in. long red; 5/16 in. wide x 10 in. long light green; 1/4 in. wide x 10 in. long dark green. Use damp brush to attach strips to cake sides at a 45 degree angle, varying spacing from 5/16 in. to 3/4 in. apart. Trim ends as needed.

Step 5

Attach small snowflakes to cake sides using thinned fondant adhesive. Insert large snowflake.
