Hi guys wondered if anyone could help!! I'm making a 3 tier wedding cake and I've got a big chunky satin bow to go in the middle of the middle tier, I don't think royal icing will b strong enough to hold it in place and my last option is to use pins with the little balls on the end but I really don't feel comfortable using then!! Has anyone got any other ideas. Thanx!!
I'm not keen on ball head pins, but everyone I know uses them for ribbon and bows.
Does it simply need a point of attachment? If the bow is tied with a wire, wrap it around a wooden skewer cut in half, then wrap it and the wire with aluminum foil. Use the other half of the skewer to make a pilot hole in the cake to insert your bow in.
If on the other hand, you want multiple attachment points, this probably won't work for you.
