how do you attach? It's GP so it will be heavy... I don't want to try something and it pull the fondant off the side of the cake...but it has to be up around the top on kind of a slope...

Do I put a toothpick in it at time of assembly of the bow? Or glue of some sort?

Have to make the bow tonight and I really need advice on it...so if I have to add something like a toothpick or something else I can go ahead.


Thanks a billion icon_smile.gif

Hope all had a wonderful Easter!!!!

I just saw Kaysie demo that purse last month.. She is working on a how-to to post later....... Anyway, she did the purse and let it sit for several hours before starting the embellishments, which stabilized the purse. I don't remember her doing anything special when attaching the bow, just gum glue. The bow isn't really all that heavy if you make it thin.. try pming her.........
