Hello all,
I'm making a cake in a few weeks for my sister in law's baby shower. we will be traveling 10 hours from Georgia to Ohio and I'll only have a short time to bake and decorate the cake once I get to my mom's house in Ohio. I'd like to purchase a colored fondant bow, light blue or brown. The cakes are going to be made to look like a stack of presents. I'd just make it myself but the last time i attempted one it broke into a zillion pieces. not to mention I really won't have enough time for it to dry.
Does anyone know where I can buy one???
Thanks so much.

I can't help you on a place to buy one, but did you use a gum paste/fondant mix for the bow you made last time? Or at least add tylose or gumtex to it? Fondant alone can be fragile, but if you add any of those things to it, it'll dry faster and harder.

no, i just used plain old fondant. I'm not really experienced in the fondant department. not a fan of the taste. thanks, i'll have to try adding that stuff though.

Have you seen the thread that shows how to make them with toothpicks? You just put a toothpick at the bottom of each piece where the ends meet), let them dry, then stick em in the cake. Easy peasy. That's how I did the one in my avatar

My bows are made with 50% fondant and 50% gumpaste--I just use the package of Wilton pre-made gumpaste. Make the loops and let them hang dry overnite. Take them off and turn on side to dry another nite. Put them together on the 3rd day (if totally dry as the humidity still affects drying time).

In one week, at the latest, you should have plenty of time for one to be ready to go.
