Grammie's Gift Cake

I made this for my DH's Grandma for her party tomorrow. I carried the pink and brown theme through with chocolate cake and raspberry SMBC as filling.
This is my first loopy type bow and first time using the diamond pattern on the sides. I had some trouble getting the chocolate fondant to cooperate too, but overall I am pretty happy with the outcome. My influences were cakes by Kathy-mi and Nunuk.

Thank you for the nice comments! If I do another, maybe I will take pics! I was really nervous the bow wouldnt turn out. I have tried a couple of other times and it didnt work. I think having the larger width made it easier.

Thanks! yes, the bow is fondant with some tylose powder mixed in...so more like gumpaste

Grammie carefully took the bow off to take home with her! I am not sure what she will do with it, but it was cute.

I like the wider loops. Those are nice. I really like how you put the little pink dots at the cruxes of the diamonds though. good detail and your fondant is perfect:)
