I love this! I am making a wedding cake with a bow this month--I was going to use fondant, but I think I'll try gumpaste. Thanks!

Do try the gumpaste. It's so much easier (and faster) to dry it...especially in this awful humidity! Good luck!!

mvucic Says... 9 years ago

Awesome cake! Can you share how you put the bow together? I was going to try one next week and put it together with candy melts.

can i have a copy of recipe of your lovely cake?

AgentCakeBaker Says... 9 years ago

Simply elegant! Fantastic job!

antonia74 Says... 9 years ago

For my bows. I do gumpaste loops around a 1.5" wooden dowel that is dusted with icing sugar (about 20 for each bow). I let them dry for one day, then I slip them off and let them dry for another day. I learned a great trick off this website to assemble it in a small bowl...which I think is brilliant! I use matching royal icing to glue it all together nearly invisibly, then I even transport it to the wedding still in that bowl, safe and secure!

that is so pretty! do you prefer making bows using gumpaste than fondant?

antonia74 Says... 9 years ago

absolutely! I like that it can be rolled much thinner and dries a lot faster...plus it hardens really well, just overnight. My fondant bows took a week to get hard.

BJ Says... 9 years ago

did you trim the edges of your cakes or use a specific pan to get that lovely rounded look?

Rexy Says... 9 years ago

Absolutely stunning! Just out of curiosity, what's Tahitian vanilla? Thx!

antonia74 Says... 9 years ago

I trim the corners of the cake slightly with a knife...mostly so that my fondant doesn't tear at all as I am covering my cakes. "Tahitian vanilla" is the vanilla bean from Tahiti, like Madagascar vanilla...they have slightly different flavours depending on which region the bean is from.

Beautiful,

ljkforester Says... 9 years ago

This looks just perfect!! Please share you recipe for strawberry buttercream. Thanks!!

antonia74 Says... 9 years ago

sure, Ljkforester. It's Martha Stewart's Italian Meringue Buttercream with fresh strawberries that have been pureed with a hand blender. You can even use frozen/thawed berries, just don't add too much liquid or the buttercream can get too runny and won't mix correctly.

The one thing about this cake that I like the most is your (positive) attitude to share and answer all the questions by the other fellow cake decorators. It says a lot about you Antonia. Keep up the great work as evident here.

beautiful bow - so simple and elegant

springlakecake Says... 7 years ago

Beautiful! It is just simple elegance. Not overdone, not a lot of fuss...just perfect! I also make my bows (just started!) like you! I agree about the matching RI and the bowl! It makes it so easy!

aundrea Says... 7 years ago

awesome cake!! outstanding work. i have a question- did you get your tahitian vanilla cake receipe from here? i have been looking for this receipe and cannot find it here. do you mind sharing? thanks!!!

CelebrationCakery Says... 7 years ago

I love this cake, just a quick question...when coloring the gumpaste I have had the purple seperate on some flowers (tops blue and bottoms pink) how did you get the color consistant?

antonia74 Says... 7 years ago

Aundrea, sorry...I have a company I share with a business partner and I can't pulish our recipes to others. The only recipe I can share is mine for royal icing, as that was mine before the business started. ChristianDonovan, not sure what's happening to your purple?? Try using the Americolor brand. It's a much truer food colouring.
