Here's my first attempt at a Gumpaste Bow. The pearls I made also out of gumpaste.
Bridal Gown W/ Cupcakes
Wow, I love the ribbon good job :D
beautiful bow...I am so envious!! I tried to make one and what a dissaster :( any tips to help make the process easier?
Beautiful! Great job!
How did you get the pearls so pearlescent? Is it luster dust powder?
yes, it's the pearl luster dust. I'll love the stuff.
That is beautiful.. It must have taken a long time.
It's beautiful! How did you get the gosgrain ribbon fabric pattern on your bow loops?
you'd never beleive how I got the grain on the ribbon affect. The plastic bird pirches with the ribs - new of course. After I rolled the gumpaste I did a final roll with the bird pirch and it made the grains. Cool huh? ;-D
Excellent it looks so real. You deserve 5 stars and a thumbs up for this creation.
This is just Beautiful..... I agree.... would like to see the whole cake too....Lovely bow...
Very, very nice, I'm jealous :D
Why don't you show us the whole cake? I'd like to see it, since the bow is so gorgeous.
How do you get the pearls on the bow?
With vanilla and a dresdan (spelling?) tool. I made this as a topper and just put it on a cake I was practicing fondant folds with. It is only an 8"x3" cake that it's sitting on. Sorry.
Really nice love the pearls
This is so gorgeous. I love it!
WOW I didn't know they could look so real!
I absolutly love the pearls on the edges!! VERY elegant looking!! Great job!! looks wonderful!
BJ....the pearls are perfect! (Bow too...) Did you use a mold to make them??? I've only done them by hand.
Thank you. Yes, I use a mold for the pearls.

Thanks for you lovely comments. Please don't hesitate to ask questions - I PM all answers so just because you don't see an answer don't think the questions aren't answered. Enjoy the day!
OMG beautiful bow!!! Can't wait till I retire so I have time to do some cakes....
Absolutely gorgeous! What sort of mold is this that you used for the pearls?
Thank you - I used a pearl mold. They can be purchased on line or at a cake supply store. Sorry they aren't available at craft stores. just "google" pear molds. A bunch of websites come up but I got mine at www.cakesbysam.com Have fun.
How did you get the pearls attatched to the ribbon....and what is a bird pirch? This is the best bow ever!!!!!
Now thats the best bow I've ever seen! I need to practice now that I've seen yours! tee hee
Nice Job!! The Pearls are Perfect!!
Your bow is perfect and gorgeous. Does the pearl mold make a string of pearls that you glue to the edge of the bow or do you mold the actual edge of the bow with the pearl mold? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I have asked many others about this and no one has answered my question. Maybe because it is common sense to some but not to me. I would love to make a bow like this.
