I made a white 6-inch cake w/ raspberry (slightly soft) filling. I have a fondant bow (which I didn't put anything to harden it well enough - that's another story - so it's still somewhat soft after 4 days...) and the bow fits the whole top of the cake. Should I risk it falling apart/crushing my cake? Can I add support to the cake? It's a tiny cake. Dumb question - but my bow is pretty cute and it took a long time!
A fondant bow shouldn't be heavy enough to crush a cake unless it's some monstrosity of a bow - ?
Why would the bow crush your cake?? I'm at a loss with this question.
I will tell you that unless your bow has hardened before you put it on the cake then the bow itself might fold.
It's not - but the cake is so little and it's a soft cake. The bow covers the whole top - minus about 1/4 inch or so... The bow feels kind of heavy when I lift it. I'm scared to put it on my cake. I was thinking of cutting off two of the loops on the bottom row to make it a little lighter. I'm scared to do that, too, though!
Am I being paranoid? Can you put a fondant bow over a little cake and will th cake support it? It has 13 loops. It's kind of big, but not a monstrosity!
I cannot imagine a fondant bow large enough to crush a cake.
it will be fine
It was fine! I put it on this morning after my cake was in the fridge all night and it was fine. I guess I was just having a "moment"! Thanks!!!!
