Hi Cakers!

I have made a fondant bow. It is the kind that has all the "loops" stacked on top of each other that you see on a lot of cakes. I think it weighs about 1 pound....maybe?? I cannot find my kitchen scale!

It is going to go on top of a BC iced sheet cake. Do I need any type of support under the bow? Like a Bubble tea straw?? I just wonder if the weight of the bow will sink into the bc.

Hoping someone reading this has made one of these bows and used it on a bc iced cake....

Happy Caking...

I have never used support for one of those... If youre concerned though, just use the straw.. what would it hurt? Plus it will be covered up by the bow icon_smile.gif But I no not think that it is heavy enough to use support.. jmo...April

I have never put support under a fondant bow either and it has always been fine. Although my theory has always been, when in doubt, be safe, it wont hurt.

Thank you! Your right, what can it hurt using just one straw??
