In advance: Tint 8 oz. white fondant each in rose, yellow, blue, green and violet. Add 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex to each color. Tint 3 oz. of each color a darker shade for trims. Make party hats.
Ice 2-layer cake smooth. Roll out reserved light colored fondant 1/8 in. thick; using pattern, cut 8 shirts in various colors. Position one shirt on side of each petal, trimming as needed. For faces, roll out light and dark brown fondant from Multi Pack 1/8 in. thick; cut 4 faces in each shade using largest round cookie cutter. Position above shirts; trim as needed.
Draw eyes, hair and mouth with FoodWriters. Roll a small ball of fondant for nose; attach with damp brush. Position hats on cake.
*Combine Lemon Yellow with Golden Yellow for yellow shown. Combine Leaf Green with Lemon Yellow for green shown. Combine Violet with Rose for violet shown.
Add subtle textures to fondant using our Fondant Ribbon Cutter/Embosser. This easy-to-use tool imprints elegant designs as it cuts fondant strips in a variety of widths and also imprints a beaded edge or textured striping. It's another great way to add a beautiful dimensional look to fondant cakes.
A Teen Doll Pick pops out to share best wishes. After piping lovely zigzag garlands, rosettes and shell borders around the cakes, add Tip 366 pull-out leaves around the doll pick?s base to create a torn-paper effect.

I used this idea for the top tier of my first-ever tiered cake. Our Relay For Life slogan this year was Imagining a World with More Birthdays, and I volunteered to make a cake for 100+ people. While I didn't use the same pan (I used a 9 in. round), I was still able to pull off making 5 of the kids shown here. They were easier than expected. The hardest part was using the fondant ribbon cutter tool for the 1st time. I still haven't mastered that yet. :o) Everyone was shocked to learn that all items were edible, including the kids' party hats. This Wilton cake idea was the WOW! factor my cake needed.

I went looking on the Wilton site for a fondant covered cone shape. This cake was perfect for looking up that technique. At least, it looked like it would be. Unfortunately, the directions for the party hats were vague. It basically just said "make the party hats"
The rest of the instructions were more complete, but I won't try this again until I have more experience with fondant

I loved making this cake for my son! My husband had problems with the clowns since he doesn't like them, but the kids loved it! They loved that they could eat the "hats" too!
