I came up with this simple way to make a bow that involves only two pieces of modeling chocolate. I make this using modeling chocolate because it sets up almost right away and it easy to handle, although you can make it with fondant or gumpaste. No worries about ruffling or tufting anything…just use the template to cut out your chocolate, then fold your edges together and you’re basically done! Enjoy!

List of Materials

  • Modeling chocolate
  • Rolling pin
  • Template


Print out the template to whatever size bow you’d like. Cut the template out and place it on your rolled out modeling chocolate.


Cut out the modeling chocolate around the template.


Make sure you cut a bit extra length on the side so you have a strip for the center of the bow. Remove excess modeling chocolate and store away.


Fold left edge to center.
Fold right edge to center.


You’re almost done! – looking like a little bow now isn’t it!? :)


Put the strip you cut out earlier over the center and tuck it behind the bow.


Use a little melted chocolate to attach it to your favorite purse, shoe or cake! Enjoy!

Can someone please tell me where I can find modeling chocolate or how to make it? I've seen it on cake shows but I can't find it at any of the stores around my home town. I would really appreciate any help.
