Nothing says "celebrate" like a cake topped with a lush fondant bow. While the bow looks intricate, it's really just a grouping of fondant strips, folded, wrapped and arranged to create a full effect. When you cut strips with the Fondant Ribbon Cutter/ Embosser, you can create bows with stripes or beaded edge embossed designs. Or place fondant on Imprint Mat and roll over one time to imprint design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have made this cake several times. Make sure to allow for prep time to make the ears and the bow. Make sure to use candy coloring, not icing coloring as it will cause the candy melt to harden. I opted to use a chocolate ganache the second time, which worked well; however, you can not handle as easily if covered with the candy coating.
