How to make a gumpaste full bow...pictorial

post #1 of 107
Thread Starter 
I have a different way to make a gumpaste bow and would like to share.
First I roll out a 7" wide and approx 11" long sheet of 50/50 gumpaste fondant in the color I need. Don't roll out too much as you don't want it to dry out.

Then cut it to the width desired.
Using a premium flat top tooth pick, gum glue to the bottom of the strip.
Fold over the top of the strip to the bottom and trim the sides to make a V.
Open the loop up as much as you like.

Make approximately 21 of these loops and completey dry on their sides.

Pearlize if you wish. Then attach to cake starting from the top and working your way down to the cake.

There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who wont anymore, & who always will. So don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

I haven't made one yet and this looks pretty easy. Can you tell me what gum glue is and what you call the tool you cut the strips with? Thanks

that's a great idea. I hadnt really thought to use tooth picks. That is a great way to do it if you want to push just a couple of loops in here or there. thanks!
