I am making a bow (loopy bow) and I want to know if I used fondant only rather than gumpaste or fondant/gumpaste mix for this bow, will it get hard? If so, will it need a few days to dry or about how long? I dont want it to flop on my buttercream cake. Please help! Thanks...

I just made a cake with my first loopy bow (a two-tone bow). I used a fondant gumpaste mix. I left it overnight to dry and it was perfect in the morning! Here's the one I did:

I use a 50/50 fondant/gumpaste mix. Best to let it dry at least overnight with some saran wrap supporting the loops. Good Luck!

How did you make the bow two-toned like that? It is really pretty!

It's actually really easy. I found these instructions a long time ago in another forum. It's in another language but the pictures are awesome, that you will be able to understand just from that. HTH

I would give yourself a few days for this bow to dry. Even with the fondant gumaste mix. Humidity is a huge factor. I have had some dry fast and others take days.
