Tint fondant: 36 oz. yellow, 24 oz. pink, 2 oz. black. Roll out 1/8” thick as needed.

For each hand, roll and flatten a 1” ball; cut slits to shape fingers. Push onto tip of dowel rod.

Use pattern to cut large mouth. Use wide end of tip 1A to cut pupils. Attach features with icing dots. Position small confetti.
