if i want to put a bow in the middle of a layer, how do you get it to stay there? especially on buttercream?. are you better off putting in on the cake before it dries or after. thanks for any input.
fondant bow? polyester bow?
When I'm doing a ribbon/bow using real ribbon, I just plop a blop of BC on the back of it and stick it on the side of the cake. My icing has usually crusted by the time I get around to doing the decorating. The ribbon/bows stick fine.
I have hung a gumpaste bow on the side of a cake. Well, rested it on the to of a tier on the side of the cake. I made a "giant hairpin" out of wire and held the bow on with that, then worked on a piece of fondant for the knot in the center of the bow.
I have rested mine on wire also they stick fine.
