I am planning on making this cake soon & my question is about the color of bow & ribbon.  Do you think its light yellow or dull golden?  How can I color my fondant which turns into that color.  Please help.  Thanks.

Looking at the color it looks like Wiltons  Daffodil  Yellow or maybe a very light Buttercup yellow.  Wilton Golden Yellow is a bit too dark but it might work if you add a little bit of color at a time. My guess would be Daffodil yellow but I am only guessing since I have only used Lemon yellow lately and that is a very bright color.

Thank you for your time.  I will try Daffodils and see if I get this color.  :)

I hope you get the right color.  But if the yellows are to bright maybe adding a little bit of Golden yellow will tone it down a bit .  Many of time I have had to combine different colors to get it just right.  Good luck and let me know what colors you had to use to get it just right.  I would love to add it to my list of colors.

I make a 3" round disk of g.p only. Let that dry really hard. I let my g/p or g/p and fondnant loops dry really hard. I put nice glob of royal icing(same color as loop) in center of disk. Then start putting my first layer of loops. i wait little  bit to let this set up, not long and the add little more r/i and add next set of loops ,etc. I truly have nver had any to break. I take an 8" cake board. put a little r/i and then the disk to hold all this down. I leave it all to dry for at least 2 days. What medium did you use to make your bows. Am i on the right track? hope so.

Look at this picture.  I made this 2 days ago.  I made a 3" g/p disk and placed my loop.  then I put smaller disk and tried to put more loops but the bottom ones started breaking.  I took the broken loops out then placed the another one with more royal icing.  This is the first time I am making this.  I found a link on pinterest and I was following that but I guess its not working.  What should I do now?  The loops are 50% fondant 50% g/p and its going on 8" cake.  I though If I make this ahead of time, all I need to do is to placed the whole loop on cake...

Are you placing anything inside the loop to help hold it's shape while they dry.  I tend to use bubble wrap or rolled up plastic wrap inserted in the loops to hold them until I assemble the cake.

I always just sit my bow loops on their sides. Always works for me. They dry. I then put together with r/i. I make some tails also. Here is one site. (so many) to help .Again we all do some things different. Some hang over rods to dry. I just sit them up. I have a few cakes in pics that show this. hth

If it's humid where you are, scrap the half and half idea and go with 100% gumpaste.  Lay them on their sides to dry inside your oven with the heat off and just the pilot light or inside oven light on - over night and they'll be hard as a rock in the morning.  I think the color is ivory with just a touch of golden.
