Does anyone have a tutorial on how to add a fondant bow to round/square cake without it messing up? A video would be a plus! Thanks!

Are you adding it to the top or the side of the cake?

Oooh, I'd like to know the answer to this as well. Pretty Please?
Seems like it'd be too heavy to stay put on the side of a cake. And if you roll the fondant for the bow thin.....then putting toothpicks or something else to stick it into the cake wouldn't work.

ok and what's the best technique to get the ribbon AROUND the cake on the side..roll it, or what? I can't get that perfect look to wrap around cake straight without tearing it.
