Knead 250 grams of green fondant well and roll this out on a work surface covered with icing sugar and cover the cake with green fondant. Remove the remaining fondant and use a smoother to smoothen the edges. Use the remaining fondant to create small leaves. Roll the fondant into a drop shape, flat them a bit and fold them. Roll out the yellow and pink fondant and cut out squares, fold them double and roll them up. These are the small roses.
Lubricate the border of the cake with a bit of water and paste the confetti along the cake.

Pipe grass along the cake and on top. Put the brown icing in a decorating bag with #233 pipe to make the nest and press the chicken and eggs in the nest. Carefully put the roses and leaves in the nest. Place some roses, chickens and eggs along the border.
