Step 1

Two to three days in advance: Make snowflakes, topper and fondant trims. For topper and snowflakes: Tint 88 oz. fondant violet. Add 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex to 4 oz. fondant (reserve remainder). Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut snowflake topper using largest cutter from set; cut four small snowflakes using second smallest cutter from set. Use patterns to mark details. Use royal icing tinted gray to cover marks with tip 2 dots, lines and beads. Let dry two days on waxed paper-covered boards.

Step 2

For fondant trims: Tint 14 oz. fondant gray. Use Baroque and Global molds to make eight each: small hearts, crowns and small scrolls. Roll 50 medium balls (1/4 in. diameter) and 50 small balls (1/8 in. diameter) for cake sides. Reserve excess fondant. Let dry on waxed paper-covered boards.

Step 3

Also in advance: Prepare base board and cover with 18 oz. fondant tinted black.

Step 4

Bake and cool 3-layer cakes (trim one layer to 1 in. to make 5 in. high cakes). Prepare and cover with reserved violet fondant; reserve excess fondant. Prepare for Stacked Construction.

Step 5

Decorate and attach fondant trims using tip 2 and gray royal icing. Use Baroque and Global Molds to make pearls for borders. Make five gray lengths for bottom border, four violet lengths for middle border; attach and trim to fit. Attach four small snowflakes to cake sides. Roll 24 gray ropes, 1/4 in. diameter, from 3 to 8 in. long. Brush with damp brush and coat with Pearlized Sugar. Attach randomly to cake sides, varying depths from 3/4 to 3 1/2 in. Pipe assorted tip 2 drop strings and vertical lines; attach fondant trims. Paint all gray fondant trims and royal icing details on cake and topper with Pearl Dust.

Step 6

Use melted candy to attach Cookie Stick to topper leaving 4 in. exposed at bottom. Let set. Insert topper.

*Combine Violet with Rose and Black for violet shown.
