Make cake. Prepare batter following recipe directions. Bake cake and allow to cool. Stack and fill for a 2-layer cake, 4" high.

Cover cake with fondant. Use spatula and icing to lightly ice cake smooth. Knead purple fondant with blue fondant. Use fondant roller with orange guide rings to roll out fondant 1/8" thick. Cover cake with fondant. Reserve remaining fondant. Keep covered so fondant stays pliable.

Decorate cake. Knead remaining fondant with white fondant. Use lace fondant and gum paste mold and lighter fondant to mold pieces according to package directions. Use damp brush to attach fondant pieces to cake.
