Step 1

3 days in advance: Make baby. Tint 6 oz. fondant copper and a 1 in. ball brown. Knead 1 teaspoon Gum-Tex into copper and 1/4 teaspoon into brown. Roll out copper fondant 1/8 in. thick. Using knife and 6 in. cake circle as a guide, cut head. Use pattern to cut two hands (reverse pattern for second hand). Let dry on cornstarch-dusted board. Reserve remaining copper fondant. Roll a brown log, 1/4 in. diameter x 2 1/2 in. long; shape into a swirl for hair curl. Let dry.

Step 2

Also: Make peas. Tint 53 oz. fondant green. Knead 1 teaspoon Gum-Tex into 6 oz. green fondant. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Using smallest circle cutter, cut four peas. Brush peas with leaf green Pearl Dust. Using largest leaf Cut-Out, cut four leaves (reverse cutter for two). For vine, roll a log, 5/16 in. diameter x 11 1/2 in. long; shape into spiral. Let all dry on cornstarch-dusted board. Reserve remaining green fondant.

Step 3

Bake and cool 1-layer half-round cake; trim to 2 in. high. Trace cake curve pattern on parchment; line up straight edge and cut curve with knife. Reverse pattern to cut other side of cake. Prepare and cover cake with green fondant.

Step 4

Roll out remaining green fondant 1/8 in. thick. Lay and shape fondant over back of 18 in. half round pan. Using fondant peapod curve pattern, cut away top to create front layer of peapod and remove. Transfer remaining piece to cake, attaching with damp brush.

Step 5

Add detail to head. Roll a 1/2 in. copper ball; attach for nose. Use tip 3 to pipe outline eyes and pipe in mouth (pat smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Attach hair curl with thinned fondant adhesive. Attach head, hands and peas; trim head as needed.

Step 6

Attach leaves together in overlapping fashion with melted candy. Cut lollipop stick in half; attach leaf pairs with melted candy, leaving 2 in. extended at bottom. Let dry. Insert in cake. For vine, attach swirl to 6 in. stick with melted candy, leaving 2 1/2 in. extended at bottom. Let dry. Bend extended end of stick slightly; insert in cake. Pipe tip 4 message.
