To make umbrella, tint 8 oz. of gum paste light green. Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick and cut a 6 in. circle with knife, using a cake circle as pattern. Generously dust the outside of one ball pan half with cornstarch and position circle on top. While still on pan, using Cake Dividing Set, divide circle into 10ths. Using large round Cut-Out, cut a scallop between each division, approximately 3/8 in. deep. Let dry on pan for 3 days.
Pipe tip 2 rib lines in royal icing from top center of umbrella down to each scallop point. Roll a small gum paste ball for button and attach with damp brush.
Remove from pan. Attach cookie treat stick or wooden dowel for handle with melted candy; let set. Let dry overnight.
