Can I get some honest opinions on this bow? I am an amateur, but this is for my first cake that I'm selling for a baby shower this weekend. I've made bows before, but I'm not sure I like this one. No offense taken for honesty. Thanks!

Ok, now I can't add the attachment..what am I doing wrong?

Attachment doesn't work. If it is your bow, you can upload it in your photos though.

Ok, it's in my photos now. Not sure why the attachment wouldn't work.

I think it looks nice! I like the color and the imprint you added to it! but if you have time (or next time) I would add more loops to make a more full bow!

There is a bug with the attachments, nothing you did wrong.

To me the bow needs a few more loops, do you have any extras you can add in?

It looks good! I filled my first bow in with twisties to cover the gaps, it helps if your out of loops or you dont have time to make more and have them dry by the time the cake is due. But I like the imprinted pattern, very nice!

Thanks for your comments. I think I agree on the too few loops..what do you mean by twisties to add to it? Anyone have pics of this?

Twisties are like in this bow that I made. You cut thin strips of fondant and wrap around a straw and let them dry.
