So I am going to make the box cake like below, but want to make a different bow (see photo).
I will make the black and white box, but the bow will be the shade of blue use to trim the cake board.
For the bow, I Would really like to try the 2tone look but can't figure out what color to make it! I wanna make the main bow blue... and the outline white, but would that look dumb? I am leaving off the polka dots...
Should I save the 2 tone for another cake?

No, that would not look dumb. That would look very pretty.
Thank you lol.
I am usually good @ visualizing, but this gave me soooooo much trouble, I have no idea why.
Thank you Amy.
No problem! I second guess myself all the time and it's so annoying.
OMG! I just realized who you are!!
Your cupcakes are adorable. Thank you.
i think the blue with the white would be beautiful. i love the 2-toned bows. I did my first one a few weeks ago!!
ohh Tara your bow looks awesome! did you use an extruder or just roll out snakes? I suck at snakes.. lol.
i used an extruder. makes it so much easier.
ya, I don't have one yet.... the one I want is like $50! I don't want the plunger one..... and if I get the twist one I won't have it by the weekend for the cake!
I was thinking about this time only, making up some stiff RI and doing one edge, let it dry then turn them over and do the other edge.....?
i got mine from michaels. i want to say it was like 30.00. I used my 40% off coupon so it wasn't that bad.
I saw a trick for rolling out snakes. if you lay a pencil(or something with same diameter that you are wanting) next to the "snake" and roll them together. it will kind of eliminate those lumps.
i want to say I saw this on one of tonedna's how to video's on you tube (maybe the calla lily).
hope this helps!!
I say a technique from toedna.. it was the one with the trim!
I used it and it works great: ) I just can't find something small enough for the boy.
I only saw the plunger kind at michaels...
What about straws or candy sticks to use to roll out your snake? Or if you need really small what about coffee stirrers, if they are round and not flat.
ohh.. coffee stirrers! Great idea
Thanks, I couldn't think of anything small and strong enough
After all that I ran out of time and BARELY had time to make the cake and bow.. so no 2 tone
I learned sooooo much from this cake.. like don't run your stencil under your hot water dispensor.. even if another stencil held up fine!
The cake looks great! Better than anything I could do, especially with no time!
P.S. about the cupcakes...I didn't make those, I just LOVE Mario.
oh.. lol. well, the cupcakes are cute non the less
