SugarShack/Sharon Zambito has a great DVD where she shows you step by step how to make one of these bows and a lot of other types of bows. A DVD worth investing in.

Thanks for sharing! I've always had a problem with bows also but the main reason for me was because I used MMF and it doesn't dry enough or harden (even if I had tylose). So now that I switched to MFF I think I will give this a try icon_smile.gif

Great bow! Do you know what size dowel you used to dry those loops on? Also what do you mean by "sample loops"?

I used to have a really hard time making bows until I stopped using MMF. Things go so much smoother with the premade stuff + tylose!

I don't remember exactly which size dowel I used for that bow, but I use 5/8" most often. Sometimes 1/2"... sometimes 7/16".

By "sample loops", I mean a few loops (4 or 5) that have been allowed to dry for maybe 10 minutes or so, just long enough to handle. Arrange them in a circle, on a cake pan or cake dummy the same size as the cake the bow will go on to see if the length of the strip needs to be adjusted.
