Cover cake with red rolled fondant. Roll out pink, light green and dark green rolled fondant and impress with various texture mats. Cut out a variety of 1 1/2" to 2 1/4" circles. Brush lightly with super pearl dust. Use a bit of water to attach at random heights on the lower half of the cake. Use a clay gun with a large rope disk to extrude a dark green rope. Twist slightly and drape into garlands around side of cake. Attach at top points with buttercream icing. Fill pastry bag fitted with #3 tip with white icing and pipe a line straight up from each ornament to right below the garland. Roll out white fondant and cut out small half moon shapes to make hook for ornaments, attach with a dot of buttercream. After buttercream has crusted carefully paint hook and string with silver luster dust mixed with a few drops of lemon oil. Use light green fondant and holly plunger cutter to make a holly leaf to go at each top point of garland. Hand shape small red, fondant balls to make berries. Attach holly and berries with a bit of water. Use Cricut Cake and white and light green fondant to make Merry Christmas text for top of cake. Use buttercream icing to attach a row of sugar pearls along bottom edge of cake.
