Place faces on waxed paper-covered board. Decorate faces using melted candy in cut parchment bags Tint portions of melted white candy black, pink, red and orange using candy colors. Decorate black dot eyes and string mouth, pink dot cheeks, red dot nose, swirl hair in orange. Let set. Attach 4 in. Lollipop Sticks to faces with melted candy. Position hats and attach with melted candy. Let set. To add fringe on hat in yellow royal icing, hold Star Tip 14 at a 45° angle to surface and pipe pull-out stars.

For finishing cupcake as shown in picture, ice cupcake smooth in buttercream icing. Pipe a ruffle collar using Tip 127. Keep the wide end of the tip in the center of the iced cupcake and narrow end pointed towards the outer edge of cupcake. Squeeze and move the narrow end of the tip up and down to create the ruffle. Turn the cupcake as you would be turning a flower nail when making a rose. It's ok if you have to stop and reposition the cupcake to make a complete turn, just try to blend the ends together.

Clown Candy Face is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I saw these online and wanted them for my daugther's carnival birthday party. Because I have never decorated a cake in my life, I took the picture to a bakery and was quoted $6.50 for each cupcake. Since I had 55 people coming, that was a little too much, so I decided to give it a try. Even with NO experience, they came out very cute and only cost about $100 in supplies (since I had to buy everything). The candy faces went pretty quickly, and can be made well in advance. The icing was a little harder for me. One suggestion - after shaping the fondant into a cone, insert the stick through the bottom of the cone all the way to the top while the fondant is still soft. That is a much more secure way of attaching the hats, prevents the sticks from showing and it makes the 4" sticks the right length for inserting into the cupcake. A spherical lollipop mold would be great for this project! This idea could easily be used to make Santas at Christmas too!
