Could anyone shed any light on how to make a two colored bow like the one in this cake? I mean the two color part of it? Do you simply "glue" the two strips together, then imprint them and proceed to making the ribbon?

hi... you lay your pink sausage roll in the middle.. white sausage rolls on each side.. roll out to your thickness.. then use an impression roller or mat.. this one has a design.. then use your pizza cutter or some kind of cutter. and cut the peices for the bow.. hth at least .. that is how i was taught 14 yrs. ago.. if it was like a little band of white then you would glue these peices to the pink.. or if it was string of samll pearls.. hope i have helped you

A bow like that is when I wish I could afford a sheeter! But icer101 is correct.

Since it looks like the cake was sprayed over with pearl dust it could also have been airbrushed. You could also paint the color on too.
