Does this bow look as bad as I think it is? I had problem dying it then I sprayted it brown and it didnt match at all so I used blue and peal dust on it hen added dots. Should I remove it and make roses for the top?

Oh silly! The first thing I mentally said, was "Pretty cake"--then I read how ugly you think the bow is.

Quit that!

It's fine--it was pretty till 'somebody' dissed it.

The height of the bow is confident and elegant--draws your eyes up up up-the polka dots lighten it up and coordinate it with the rest of the decor--the flowers are well spaced--just right and add another textural difference that complements--the ribbon and borders are done very well--the whole impact of the cake is well proportioned, wholesome, pretty, uber delicious looking has a can't wait to cut and stuff in face glow about it. icon_lol.gif

I agree with everyone else...bow looks great - cake really looks delicious. Do you mind sharing what frosting you used?
It looks really "fudgy"... icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

Your chocolate will probably darken and will wind up matching your bow. It's beautiful! Don't touch a thing! thumbs_up.gif

For the chocolate icing I used 8 oz butter 8oz Crisco 2 pounds of CS and 1.5 cups Hershey cocoa added coffee to thin to spreading consistancy

Cakes Delivered and looks great in the venue. It almost didnt make it in its resting spot. After being told to carry it thru the kitchen to the other side of the venue I was then told to carry it upstairs. When I got to the top of the stairs I was dizzy ( because I feel like crap from getting a cold) and went to put it down on a table I almost dropped it. Ny heart was beating so fast and I couldnt breath. Oh my that was the closets I;ve come to dropping a cake. Thank god it made it. Now I am home resting for 15 minutes and then have 3 more birthday cakes to do.
Thank you for your much needed support!

It is gorgeous! I can't believe you think something is wrong! My first response was like k8memphis's response...wow, pretty cake, and then I read that you thought something was wrong with your bow. I love it! princess.gif
