10 inch round cake
8 inch round cake
Tips # 3 and 5

2 lollipop Sticks
Sage Green(light moss green) and white buttercream icing
White and sage green gum paste

Step 1:

A few days in advance, make the gum paste bow and stroller.

***Decorator’s Tip*** Click here to purchase a gum paste stroller otherwise follow these instructions. To make the stroller, cut 2 large circles and 4 small circles out of white gum paste. Cut out ¼ of each of the large circles to make the body of the stroller. Once the gum paste dries, sandwich the lollipop stick between the body of the stroller and the wheels. Remember to let some of the sticks hang below the wheels so that you have something to stick into the cake. In order to get the lollipop sticks to stay you will have to wrap the parts touching the stroller in gum paste and wet with water. Once dry you can stick on the sage green details and paint with pearl dust.
