To prepare both cake rounds for fondant, ice them with a layer of buttercream icing.

To create orange fondant for bottom layer, knead a ball of white fondant until soft. Using a toothpick, dot orange icing color onto fondant, and knead until evenly distributed. Save some orange for step 5.
3) Color blue fondant
Knead a ball of white fondant until soft and repeat tinting method with sky blue icing color for top tier. Knead until color is evenly distributed.
4) Roll out fondant
Roll out orange fondant. Place over larger cake round and smooth using a fondant smoother. Trim off excess with a pizza cutter or paring knife. Do the same for the blue fondant on smaller cake. Place smaller cake on larger cake.
5) Create paw print
To create an orange paw-print for the top tier take the extra orange fondant from step 2 and roll out. Use two different sizes of circle cookie or fondant cutters and cut out one large circle and three small circles. Use buttercream frosting as an adhesive. Place larger circle on top tier and place the three smaller circles so that they are in the shape of a paw.
6) Tint fondant violet
Take another ball of white fondant and knead until soft. Use toothpick method to dot violet icing color into fondant and knead until color is even.
