Preparation:
Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C) and grease the baking pan and one of the two hemisphere pans with Bake Release Spray. Prepare the Mix for Cupcakes as indicated on the package and divide it into the baking pans. Bake the cakes for 50-60 minutes. Check occasionally with a skewer. If the cakes get too brown, put a piece of aluminum foil on top halfway through the baking time. Meanwhile, prepare the Mix for Buttercream and set aside.

When the cakes are done, let them cool in the baking pan for 10-15 minutes before you pour them on a cooling grid to cool completely.
Add piping gel to the cone and cover it with the Baby Blue fondant. Colour 150 g of Bright White fondant with the Royal Blue gel, roll it out into a long thin strip and create a long string with the multi ribbon cutter. Glue this with some edible glue around the cone. Roll out some Baby Blue fondant thinly and cut out two hearts for the feet.

Knead some black fondant until it’s smooth, roll it out and make a mouth with the cutting wheel. Use the round cutter to cut out a pupil as well. Roll out a little bit of Sea Blue fondant and cut out an eye with the largest round cutter. Knead the rest of the Sea Blue fondant, form two cones and stick skewers in it. These are the horns. Finally, roll out a small piece of white fondant and cut out an eye with the largest round cutter. Now glue all parts of the eye on top of each other with some edible glue and let it dry slightly. Color a piece of white fondant green with the FunColours Gel and form a ball. Attached the ball to the top of the cone.

Now colour the buttercream with green FunColours Gel. Put the hemisphere cake on top of the other one with a dot of buttercream in between and cut the edges slightly with a sharp knife. Cover the entire cake with some green buttercream, attach the fondant mouth on it and let it set in the fridge.

Put the rest of the buttercream in a decorating bag with tip #233 and cover the entire cake with this. Then attach the horns on the head, if necessary by cutting a piece of the skewer. Also put the hat on top of the cake. Put the eye on the cake and place the feet in front.
