Step 1

In advance: Tint 72 oz. fondant brown; cover base board. Tint 96 oz. fondant ivory. Reserve 72 oz. for cake panels. Add 2 teaspoons Gum-Tex to 24 oz. ivory fondant; roll out into a 20 x 10 in. rectangle. Imprint design using Fondant Imprint Mat. Make 18-loop top bow using 1 x 9 1/2 in. imprinted strips.

Step 2

Ice 2-layer cakes smooth with Chocolate Buttercream. Prepare for Stacked Construction and position on fondant-covered base board.

Roll out 24 oz. white fondant into a 5 x 20 in. rectangle, 3/16 in. thick. Cut eight 1/2 x 20 in. strips and position on cake sides about 1/2 in. away from edges of ivory fondant strips.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

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 5 out of 5 by from Made this cake for an april wedding. I am writing to thank you for the gorgeous wedding cake. The people said it was the best. It was a hit and was something people remember me by now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I probably found this more difficult than most because I have not had a lot of experience in cake decorating, though I have made several that turned out great and taken a few classes. I could not seem to do all the detailed work that this cake requires and after several attempts I finally had to throw in the towel and go buy a cake instead. I was very disappointed. I would not suggest making this cake unless you have a very steady hand and quite a bit of experience doing detailed decorating work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this at Christmas, with red,, white and green. It was beautiful and really fit the occasion. I'm thinking of making one for the 4th of July. I think that would be neat.
