I am having no luck with trying to make a loopy bow to put on top of my cake...this is the second time I have tried....not quite sure what I am doing wrong.....does anyone know of a video tutorial? Doug....JanH?
there is a tutorial on c/c under articles. Also cakeboss.com. Click forums, the how do i, you will see a sticky on lots of tutorial. hth
hope this helps
thank you both....i will give it another go tomorrow!
Where are you having trouble? I've done two, and both turned out decently (see my photos).
I used the cakeboss tutorial for the first (and so far only) one I made and was very happy with it. Lying the loops on the side to dry seemed easier than looping them over a dowel.
There's a tutorial in my signature below.
I made my first fondant loop bow last month based on cakeboss.com as well as the tutorial here on cake central. I had my husband make me one of those fondant loop bow dryers out of pvc, mixed a little tylose in my Satin Ice fondant, let the loops dry for 5 days on the dryer, used wilton candy melts for the glue, and I thought it came out great and hope that it wasn't beginner's luck and I can do it again!
I made extra loops and also made a few that were shorter than most for the top of the bow. I put it together on a piece of wax paper inside of my 6 inch round cake pan and left it sit in there overnight.
There's a picture of the cake and bow in my photos...hth good luck!
