If so, can you tell me how? I need one for a cake tomorrow. Otherwise, it'll have to be fondant.

Hi icon_smile.gif

Do you mean out of chocolate candy clay? If so, I have. I used Serious_Cakes video/recipe (on YouTube) to make the clay. Then I just followed the tutorial for how to make a fondant bow and did the same thing with the thinly rolled candy clay. I cut 1 in strips and made the loops and let them set overnight, then glued it together with melted candy wafers until set. The link to the cake is below. I hope this helps! Good luck!

Thank you mobogal. Actually I meant with just melted chocolate, but I've figured it out. Hopefully it works. icon_smile.gif

you can use freezer paper or a piece of acetate to make your bow loops. cut the paper to the size loops you want. spread melted choc over the shiny side of the freezer paper wait for it to just start to set up then fold the paper over with the choc inside. once set (you can put in the fridge to speed this up) peel the paper away.
Although if it is a hot day tomorrow your bow could melt instantly. been there, done that, in TX!!!

I do mine the same way Sweetcakes does it! Works great! I just use plain ol' waxed paper, though... Good luck!

Thanks sweetcakes! That's actually exactly what I did. I just didn't think it was going to work at first. Luckily, I think it's going to rain tomorrow, so hopefully it won't be too warm. icon_biggrin.gif
