Love the cake!!! In case cake queen doesn't get a chance to answer....
Gumpaste glue is just a little piece of gumpaste mixed with water. You can also put the glue in a water color pen so you always have it and it doesn't spill on you.

You can make gum glue with tylose/gum trag and water too. It's a bit easier than waiting for the gumpaste to melt. icon_smile.gif

This is pretty much how I do bows too.. I use wire but I'm going to give the toothpicks a try. icon_smile.gif

Im still trying to master the bow just the reg ole way ! Melvira was trying to help me via pm last night! Im such a bow looser !!! Part of my bow problems are the big glob of RI I put in the middle to stick it all together ! When its all done it looks just like a big golb of RI I just stuck there ! Very sad ! So I just kep throwing them out ! Maybe this would be a better choice for me ! Thanks for the answers !

Thanks a ton!
This looks so easy - I'm no longer hesitant to finally make one... (I tried the method of hanging them over a broomstick and pinching the ends together but that wasn't near is easy as it looked).
No pressure... no diamonds.

I too am having trouble with the glob of RI or chocolate showing. I think the toothpick or wire will work better for me. Thanks.

Saw this idea when it was first posted and tried it that weekend! What a great idea! and the bow was SOOOOO easy to do and put on the cake! So much easier than the traditional way! No way am I ever going to do it without the toothpicks! I even used the 'extras' I always make for a little corner detail with a tiny flower and 2 bow loops.

So glad you all like it! it is sooooo much easier for me, as I was once a bow loop loser!
Jen, Thanks for the gum glue explanation. I just use egg white but I know most use gum glue.

You can just use water too.. it works. Just don't put too much or it'll be slippery. The same goes for the gum glue too.

I dry my loops on a wooden dowel.. you get less distortion that way.
