First "Present" Cake

Buttercream "wrapping paper", and gumpaste bow. This was my FIRST attempt with gum paste, and I think it turned-out okay. The gift tag was done with gum paste as well.

I think I made the bow-pieces too fat/wide or something, because I had more to use, but no room - and I see everyone elses bows have all KINDS of loops! So, any advise would be much appreciated! Thanks! :D

It's a cute cake! When you make the bow loops, twist the ends to a point. That way you can fit more bow loops together.

Love the detailed ribbon. Bows do get easier with time.
