Hi, Please help - I need to make these sugar knots, but does anyone know how they're made, or if they're in one of Zoes books?

Thank you

they are really hard to see -- if that's all i had to go on -- i would make a small five petal blossom in thick fondant -- i'd thin one petal with my fingertips to roll up and use as the center then --i'd roll the rest of it out again to make more of a cup shape out of the middle section -- probably just stick it  in the middle with a large ball tool or dowel end -- i'd roll up one petal at a time to make the rest of it -- y'know thinning it with my fingers as needed -- but other than something like that -- the picture is too un-definite to make out the shape or if it's pulled sugar or some other medium -- hey modeling choco/candy clay might be great medium too or a fondant/candy clay combo--

got a better picture? a close up would be nice

They look more like little bows--like the bows they sell at Christmas time, but not as full.  Looks like 4 attached loops and 1 circle set on its side for the center

Norcalhiker, I was thinking the same thing. They look like little gift bows.

I agree Noralhiker, more like little bows than made with a blossom cutter.

The only thing I can think is to cut each loop individually from strips of icing, then piece each together with a circle backing for support. But they look so precise & uniform that they look like they'd be made from one cutter rather than uniform like that

Here's a better picture
