Hello All,

I have been trying to search this site for directions on how to make those bows that have several loops. They are usually on top of the present cakes or wedding cakes. The problem is I have not idea on how to search for previously discussed topics. I have tried to click on the search tab and type in what I am looking for but no luck. Please help a frustrated CC member.

The fewer words, the better.

I searched "bow" and got 968 matches:
Good info in this one:

If I search "Fondant Bow", I get over 53,000 matches.

If I search "How to make a fondant bow", I get over 53,000 matches.

Use fewer words, not more, to get a more narrowed result list.

Also, if you can recall any CC'er who may have posted a comment on the topic, enter that name in the "author" field. REALLY helps!

For example, if I search for "SPS", I get 668 matches. If I search for "SPS" with "leahs" as an author, I get 206 matches. And since leahs is the SPS go-to-person, these 206 are much more narrowed down.

Thank you so very much. Of course, now I am getting the results that I was looking for. I think it was more of an user error icon_redface.gif

Thank again!
