That's the method that I use and it doesn't fall apart during transport icon_biggrin.gif

I guess I don't quite understand what you mean. Is this a loopy bow?

Sorry all. I should have been more specific. Jamie, yes something like that. I've seen pictures on this site where the cakes have multiple (5 or 7 maybe) loops standing up on the tops and sides of the cakes. Thanks. Anyone else?

Well, as a matter of fact-doing that very cake later this week (in pink and black-so cute). I have the ribbon loops done, and honestly, I have not given any thought to keeping it upright. In reality, I was probably going to (when it came time), secure them to a piece of discreet gumpaste behind the brooch, with some royal icing or gum paste glue, and not set it up there until right before I am walking thru the door with it.
