Does anyone know how to make a knot like the one pictured below in the middle of the fondant bow? A friend has requested this, and any help at all would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
Also, I assume the fondant ribbon, knot, and bow should all be attached to the cake while fairly pliable. Can someone please advise me how long I should let them try after that and before the party?
You need to let the bow part dry until hard, or it won't stay sticking up like that. The knot (to my eyes, anyway) looks like someone took a ball of fondant and used a veining tool to mark it that way. You can attach it to the cake with melted chocolate or royal icing.
For the ends of the bow, it may take a few days to dry. I generally make mine of gumpaste so it dries faster and harder.
Thanks so much! All very helpful info =).
