Help, now matter what I try, fondant, gumpaste, or fondant gumpaste combo I cannot make a decent looking bow. How do you make the wonderful indentations that look like a real bow. My dry up and fall apart, and just look awful to begin with. Some of you out there make the most beautiful real looking bows. I'm talking about the single loop on each side with knot in middle and tails flowing and natural looking, not the multiloop ones. Any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks in advance

If you go to planet cakes website they have a tutorial that I found easier than the standard bow, and it was really cute.
