I know we have a tutorial on it but I do not know how come my doesn't come out full. If you look down on it you can see the icing and the gaps. What am I doing wrong? Here is a cake dummy I did. It looks nice from the front but if you go by the sides or top it doesn't look like how everybody else does on cc. I would let you see the picture but I do not know how to upload.

Did you do some loops of different sizes? some wide, some half as wide? then use the half as wide ones to fill in the gaps.

How are you drying them? Are you putting tissue in between to keep the shape?

I tend to take my loops and put them at different angles. So some of them my be horizontal and some up and down.

I agree with Justbeck....I make about three different widths when I make my bows. Also, I narrow the ends so that they in fit together more tightly.

I did put them different angles. I did not know to make the different width. Maybe I may them to thick or didn't pinch the ends narrow enough. I thought they where all suppose to be the same size. The drying part I got I hang them but I just can't fit them close together where there are no gaps.
