I can't find my info fast that tells what size dowel to use for afondant loopy bow. I have a 1" but I'm thinking that was a little to big. Should it be a 7/8" or a little less? Thanks in advance!

You can judge the size of the dowel by the finished size YOU want... loop a piece of paper and make a bow loop to see what you like...then find a dowel that will make it that size! I have different sizes for different purposes.....
