I'm planning on making a MMF covered cake to look like a present. I've only worked with fondant a couple of times, and need to know how to make a bow? TIA,
M

Your going to get a lot of help and suggestions on this one!! Have you done a search in the forums yet?
Take a look at the bows in my photos and I can PM you if you like this style. I tend to make mine a little different from the tutorials that I found. Only after a lot of frustration icon_lol.gif

MJS4492, I really like your gift box cake and your calla lily cake. I would love to make both of these kinds of bows! TIA

You guys who can make a fondant bow are so talented. I actually tried one once. (No! Really! I did!) The end result was ..... well, let's just say THANK GOD Wilton makes a Bow-in-a-Box for people like me!
