I'm going to be putting a bow on the top of a 6" round cake. I'm in the process of making all the loops and was wondering if anyone else has made this bow using 1/4" loops. So far I like the smaller look for a smaller cake top. They are about 5" long, so I've made about 40 so far.
Any tips would be appreciated.
Yep-- that's the bow. I do have her book, really creative ideas. How did you attach your bow to your cake? Yours is great. I hope mine turns out that well.
We made each loop on shortish (maybe 3" long) wires and made sure to roll the cut ends of the gumpaste into a point on the wire. This really only left about 1" of wire at the bottom. When dry, the wired loops were placed into a mound of gumpaste glued on top of the fondant. The wires did not extend into the cake - just into the gumpaste.
