Hello everyone,
I'm having trouble with a bow I need for this saturday. I mixed fondant with tylose, this usually works for me, but infortunatly here in my country we are in an emergency state because of the rain, it's been raining non stop since friday... There are floods and lanslides, a lot of homes are afected
I don't know what to do to make it dry, and on the other hand I don't even know if the wedding is going to take place, if it keep raining it could turn even uglier.

Sorry for the vent!
Please keep us on your prayers!

I'm sorry to hear about all the rain. It dampens the spirits also.
I have heard of people putting their loopy bows in the oven to dry.
If electric, turn the light on.
If gas with a pilot light, no heat, this should dry them.

I hope this helps and I hope you see sunshine soon!

If it looks like the rain isn't going to let up, you may have to resort to using real ribbon. I'd suggest folding pieces of ribbon as you would do with a piece of fondant, and gluing them to toothpicks (cocktail sticks). Then, stick the picks into the cake.

Best of luck to you!

I wonder if a chocolate bow would work in this case?
