Ingredients and Supplies
  • 6", 8" and 10" cakes
  • 3 1/2 lbs. blue fondant
  • 2 lbs. yellow fondant
  • 1 lb. pink fondant
  • orange food spray
  • green food spray
  • royal icing
  • paisley accessory mold
  • 14" cake drum

  • yellow food coloring
  • blue food coloring

Cover 6" cake with pink fondant, 8" cake with yellow fondant and 10" cake with blue fondant. Roll out remaining blue fondant to a 14" circle. Place texture sheet on top of fondant and roll over once with rolling pin, applying heavy, even pressure. Spread thin layer of buttercream or piping gel on cake drum. Carefully lift fondant onto drum and trim around edge. Place ribbon around edge of drum if desired. Stack cakes using your preferred method.
Place cake on turntable (if available). Spray orange food spray where 6" cake meets 8" cake and slowly rotate the cake. Blend color by spraying lightly above and below. Repeat the same process for green food spray between 8" and 10" tiers.
Mix royal icing according to recipe or package instructions. Thin slightly by adding extra water. Use food coloring to create 5 different colors and put each in parchment cone.
Knead together small amount of blue and yellow fondant to make green and yellow and pink to make orange. Spray paisley accessory mold lightly with cooking spray and wipe out excess with paper towel. Push small amount of colored fondant into mold and scrape off any excess. Remove piece from mold by gently prying up edge with straight pin. Attach to cake with small amount of royal icing. Repeat using different colors until entire cake is covered. Pipe small dots and details in assorted colors around edge and on top of each molded paisley.
