images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSbOo8piziKegWGW1Ihxfj

 

I do not take credit for this cake, I am just showing example.

 

My question is, do i place gumpaste bows on cake at venue or before delivery?

 

the venue is 20 miles from where I am.

 

The cake will be two tiers only. 11 and 8 inch

 

I am scared that they may rip fondant and fall during transit of cake.

 

Thanks for any answers:)

Well, it can easily be done at home. You can use melted chocolate. If i am nervous about anything, i usually wait and do those kind of things at venue. hth

AI always do bows on site. Takes a few minutes so its not worth the risk.

I use royal icing, or glue made with tylose and a bit of water and I get it to a thick syrup constancy.
