fun with fondant: eat cake

Step 1
Project Note: Combine Orange and Rose icing colors to get orange color shown. Combine Violet and Rose icing colors to get purple color shown.
 
Prepare cake batter following recipe instructions. Bake and cool two cake layers. Trim each layer to 1½ in. high. Fill and stack for 3" high cake. Prepare cake for fondant covering.  
Step 2
Using 20" fondant roller with orange guide rings, roll out fondant. Cover cake, reserving excess for later step. 
Step 3
Using remaining fondant, divide into seven 1 oz. pieces. Tint each portion orange, purple, green, yellow, blue, pink and Teal using icing colors and color combinations provided. Mold each portion separately into letter molds. Remove from mold; let dry, about 10 to 15 minutes. Reserve any remaining fondant for later step. 
Step 4
Spray small amount Gold Color Mist® into small bowl. Using flat brush, paint bottom half of letters. Let dry, about 10 minutes. Place letters on cake. 
Step 5
Using reserved fondant and 9" fondant roller with pink guide rings, roll out each color, seperately. Using small end of tip 5, cut out 10 to 12 small circles. Using small end of tip 12, cut out 10 to 12 large circles. Cut large circles in half to form half circles. 
Step 6
For moons, use small end of tip 12 to cut out 10 to 12 circles. Move tip down slightly and cut again to create moon shapes. 
Step 7
For triangles, squares, and short and long confetti, cut small strips of fondant, then cut out shapes using sharp knife. 
Step 8
Attach confetti to cake with damp brush.
