Step 1

In advance, make gum paste trims. Tint gum paste as follows: 3 oz. light green, 14 oz. light rose, 5 oz. medium teal.

Step 2

To make green bow, roll green gum paste 1/16 in. thick (using pink spacers on rolling pin) by 1 1/2 in. wide. Cut into two 6 in. strips; pinch short ends together and lay on side on cornstarch-covered board to dry. Reserve green gum paste for knot. When bow loops are completely dry, cut 1 strips 3 in. long x 1 1/2 in. wide and wrap around ends of bow and attach with damp brush.

Step 3

For light rose bow: Roll light rose gum paste 1/16 in. thick and cut 15 to 18 strips measuring 8 in. long x 1 in. wide. Pinch short ends together and let dry on cornstarch-covered board.

Step 4

For teal curlicues: Roll teal fondant 1/16 in. thick and cut into 1/4 wide strips with lengths varying from 10 to 12 in. long. Wrap strips around dowel rod to curl and gently slide off. Separate curls and let drive on cornstarch-covered board. Continue making curlicues until all teal gum paste is used.

Step 5

Tint fondant as follows: Tint 1/2 package violet with a small amount of rose, 1/4 package same shade of teal as curlicues, 1/2 package light rose to match bow, 1/2 package medium rose, 1/2 package medium green. Keep covered until ready to use.

Step 6

Bake cakes as follows: 8 in. square (two, 2 in. layers and one, 1 in. layer); 10 in. square (two, 2 in. layers); 12 in. square (two, 1 1/2 in. layers); 8 x3 in. round (one layer). Let cool. Ice cakes smooth with buttercream. To achieve shade for 12 in. square cake, mix equal parts of Violet and Royal Blue Icing Colors.

Step 7

For 8 in. cakes: Prepare for stacked construction. Cover top and sides on 1 in. layer cake with medium rose fondant. Roll out strips of light rose fondant and cut 1/4 in. wide and 3/4 in. wide; attach alternating sizes to cake side. Pipe tip 5 dots on 3/4 in. wide strips (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch).

Step 8

Step 10

For 8 in. round: Cover top of cake with medium green fondant. Cut a 3/4 in strip of medium green fondant to fit around top edge of cake. Cut 1 in. medium green circles using large open side of large tip (either 1M, 2A or 2B). Position on cake. Place 8 in. round on 12 in. square cake. Position bows and curlicues on top of cakes. Place cakes on stand.

You know how much flair curling ribbon adds to a package. Here's the easy way to make fondant curls. Curliques also are great used for hair, tails and confetti streamers.

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.

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.
