In advance: Make fondant crown. Mix 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex with 4 oz. fondant. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Use pattern to cut crown; let dry on cornstarch-dusted surface. Also: Make 6 tip 131 and 18 tip 225 drop flowers with royal icing. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry. Add tip 3 dot centers. And: Cut lollipop stick in half. Attach 3 in. pieces to back of dried crown using royal icing; leave 2 in. exposed to insert into cake.
Use tip 3 to outline and pipe-in eyes, pupils, nose, inside of ears and paw pads (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Outline mouth. Cover cake with tip 16 stars. For tutu, pipe tip 127D double ruffles; add tip 8 outline waistband. Insert crown in cake. Attach flowers to crown and tutu; pipe tip 349 leaves. Pipe tip 3 number.
Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream directly on your cake, or pipe in royal in advance and place your flowers anywhere. Flowers will be sharper in definition when piped in royal.
The star tip creates the most popular, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated
edges of the star tip makes ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Use for borders,
details such as buttons and facial features, flower centers, filling in cakes baked in
Lavish your one-year old with good-luck wishes. Fashion a four-leaf clover from 8 in. Round Pan cakes covered in fondant. Add a Teddy Bear Pan cake and a fondant message formed with our Make-Any-Message Letter Press.

I made this cake in about 3 hours prior to my neices birthday party, and I didn't have much trouble.
The con to this idea for was that the little details like the ears and eyes were sloppy for me to fill.
The pro was that the piping design of this cake was quick and easy. This was the first cake I ever did with piped buttercream icing (I'm a beginner).
Plus, it was delicious!!!!

I made this cake as a "graduation cake" for my Wilton class. I spent 5 hours icing the cake. It took a long time because I made the icing too stiff and it was difficult to squeeze the icing through the star tips. Next time I will make sure the icing is a medium consistency. This cake is adorable and my toddlers love it!

For me the most difficlut part of this cake was the ruffle tutu. (I couldn;t find the right tip locally and didn't have time to order it.) Make sure you let the tiara dry well or it won't stand up properly.
