Roll pink fondant to desired thickness, brush cake with piping gel and cover cake. Stack cakes.
Color royal icing and put colors into bags with tips. Trace the raised pattern on the 6" cake with royal icing colors. Roll out white fondant and cut skulls using cutter from Cutie Cupcake Set. Attach to 9" cake using piping gel. Detail each skull using royal icing. Pipe decorative scrolls in between skulls.
Use run sugar to flood the cookie and allow to harden. Use colored run sugar to detail. Place on top of cake using wooden skewer.
