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.

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!
