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

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.

BJ....the pearls are perfect! (Bow too...) Did you use a mold to make them??? I've only done them by hand.

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.

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.
