On the photos on the first page the photo with the loops shows what i believe is two smaller loops. Can any body confirm this and can you tell me how long they are too.

This is a fabulous tutorial and is going to help me out immensely today. Thank you so much.
I do have a few questions:
Does anyone have a magic formula for how large to make the loops for different size cakes? I'm making a 10" round and it's going to be trial and error for me, I think!
How much fondant should I need for the bow that is described here? I read somewhere that a tennis ball sized amount works, but I don't want to run out and have to dye more and try to match colors.

I like to cut my strips the same length as the diameter of the cake. That way, each loop is almost half the cake's diameter and fills up the top of the cake nicely when assembled.

Clarification, please. You mention larger and bigger loops. Are they all the same length? Are they all the same size loop (the open area)? I only ask because you use the words "bigger".

Nice tutorial. Thanks!

I make most of my loops the same size, then a few smaller ones to add as filler if needed.

Love the tutorial! Thanks for the photos. Really helped out! Now I have courage to try!! Just curious...I have seen bows that have a trim on the edge of each side of each loop. How is this done? Any advice on how to achieve this look is appreciated!

To make the contrast edge, I use a clay extruder to make thin strands of gumpaste and attach them to the strips before making the loop. Super simple!
