When making a big loopy bow cake topper, what do you use to hold the loops together?

I use royal icing, assuming you are using fondant for the bow itself.

I've used royal icing and also a ball of fondant that I've dampened.

You can use gum glue, royal icing or buttercream to hold the loops together all work. I use the gum glue it works best for me

I use royal icing, but have also used gum glue and buttercream. Anything which is edible and tacky can be used.

I make each loop on a wire then twist together and insert it into the cake.

I melt some chocolate wafers the same color as the bow in a squeeze bottle. This works well as glue. I do let each layer of the bow harden a bit in the fridge for a minute or so before I start the next layer. I can save the chocolate in the bottle for another time.

I make pointy ends and insert in the cake..they hold really well and you dont see flat ends.

This is exactly how I do it, too. Except I put my chocolate in a parchment cone or disposable decorating bag. thumbs_up.gif
