O h I wish I had seen this post 2 months ago when my first bow turned into a glob of RI and drooping loops, what a mess my first disaster was icon_cry.gif and no time to make a new one before customer pick up icon_cry.gif I was able to make one for a wedding later that month with candy melts and it was geat since it was white, but for a colored bow this is it! I will make one tomorrow to practice. Thank you icon_biggrin.gif

I have to make my first bow this weekend and I am really nervous. This looks like a great alternative and I am so glad I found this thread.

Thanks!

Just wondered if anyone has tried this method yet and how they liked using it ? Or if they had to make any changes ?Thanks

cakequeen, I want to thank you for sharing your tutorial with us all.

I did a wedding cake this weekend and I used your method and OMG!!
it was a "breeze" to just pop those toothpicks into the top of the cake.....
The only thing I should have done was the bottom layer against the cake
I should have laid a bit more flat.........but you live and learn.
Now I know for next time.

Will post picture later.

I have tried this method too but with wire. It was wonderful!! I tried the original way and my bow never held up. It just drooped!! Made me so mad!!! This way is much easier and looks much cleaner!!

Charmaine, So glad you tried it and liked it! Yes, in the instructions, I should have said to make some for the bottom row without the toothpicks to lay flat.
Thanks for the feed back!

Thanks so much. These look a lot easier than what i have been struggling with. What is gum glue?

Gum glue is about a pea size piece of gumpaste dissolved in 1 TBSP water. Use it to glue pieces together and it doesn't leave a shine on the finished product like egg white does.

how do you make the edges of your bow a different color so it is two toned?

Thanks,

Lou

I believe you have to roll out (use a clay gun) a string of colored fondant/gp whatevere you are using and then add the line to each side of each ribbon piece, securing it with a little glue,water or I use vodka.

do you add your colored strings before or after you assemble your bows?
