Step 1

In advance: Make fondant head and hat. Tint 3 oz. fondant copper (skin tone) and 2 oz. yellow; combine copper with 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex and yellow with 1/4 teaspoon. Roll out 1/8 in. thick; cut head and hat using patterns and knife. Let dry 48 hours on cornstarch-dusted surface. When dry, decorate using royal icing on waxed paper covered board. With tip 5, outline and pipe in mouth; add bead tongue (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Pipe tip 5 dot eyes, nose and cheeks (flatten and smooth with finger); add dot pupils (flatten and smooth). Pipe tip 18 C-motion hair. Attach hat, pipe tip 18 pull-out pompom and fringe; let dry 48 hours.

Step 2

Also: Make right hand (left hand holding balloons will be made when cake is assembled). Roll out white fondant 1/2 in. thick; cut hand using pattern and knife. Shape fingers. Insert lollipop stick in hand; let dry 48 hours on cornstarch-dusted surface. Attach two lollipop sticks to back of head with melted candy for support; let dry.

Step 3

Bake and cool 1-layer round cake and Classic Wonder Mold cake (use firm-textured batter such as pound cake). Prepare for stacked construction on double-thick, foil-wrapped board. Trim 10 in. cake to match angle of Wonder Mold Cake. Cut dowel rods 6 in. long for arms; insert in cake sides leaving 3 in. exposed. Ice cake and arms smooth in buttercream. Tint 4 oz. fondant yellow, roll out 1/8 in. thick and cut into 1 x 3 in. strips. Attach to bottom of cake, 1 in. apart. Pipe tip 1M zigzags around waist, neck and sleeves. Pipe tip 1M swirl buttons. Use wide opening of tip 18 to imprint dots on costume; pipe in dots with tip 5 (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Make left hand. Cut 2 lollipop sticks to 7 in. long and 1 to 8 in. long. Slightly bend sticks 2 in. from one end and attach 2 in. inside of dowel rod arm with melted candy, placing longer stick in middle; let set. Roll out white fondant 1/2 in. thick. Reverse pattern and cut hand with knife. Shape fingers; wrap around to form fist. Tie balloons to lollipop sticks; tie on curling ribbon. Insert head into cake. Position on stand at party.
