I need to make a gift box that is rather large, it is an 11x15. I want to put a loop bow on it. How many loops should I make and what size should they be so it looks proportional? Also, would you place it in the middle or off to a corner on a cake this shape?
Finally, for those who have done it before would you use royal icing or chocolate melts to glue the loops together. Which one holds better?
When I make loopy bows I make a lot of loops so that when I'm putting the bow together I can fiddle around with it until it looks right.
I also find that chocolate melts work much better as they set up almost instantly. Good luck!
Thank you, by the way I love your cakes, they all look so pretty
You can check out my loopy bow instructions in my signature below.
I wire each loop individually so that I can build the bow on the cake. It looks very natural that way.
