Also in advance: Prepare base board. Using 15 in. petal pan as a guide, cut board. Prepare and cover with white rolled fondant.

Step 3

Attach Cookie Stick to back using melted candy; allow 3 in. of stick to extend at bottom to insert into cake.

Step 4

Tint fondant: 12 oz. blue 8 oz. green and 6 oz. orange; reserve remaining white. Bake and cool 2-layer 6 in. and 8 in. cakes and 3-layer 12 in. cake (for 6 in., trim layers to 1 1/2 in. high for a 3 in. high cake, for 12 in., trim one layer to 1 in. high for a 5 in. high cake).

For 8 in. tier, roll out blue 1/16 in. thick. Cut a 27 x 1 1/2 in. wide strip; attach at center. Use mold to make green scalloped ribbons totaling 27 1/2 in. long; attach over blue strip. Using piping gel method and your favorite font, transfer message around green strip. Use buttercream and tip 1s to cover marks.

For petal tier, roll out pink, green, blue and orange fondant 1/16 in. thick. Cut 5 x 5 in. wide rectangles, one in each color. Apply to four petals, leaving four petals in between empty. Pipe tip 2 dots. For each remaining petal, use mat to mold four assorted 5 in. lengths of rick-rack trim; attach, about 1 in. apart. Pipe vertical lines between trims using tip 2. For base board, use mold to make eight 6 in. strips of blue rickrack trim; attach to edge with damp brush. Stack cakes.
