Bow Loops is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're looking for something extravagant on a cake or cupcake try these. I've sprinkled edible glitter on them after piping and they look so elegant. Several loops together make a beautiful backdrop for gumpaste flowers too. This is such an easy technique for a great bow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made these in different thicknesses. As mentioned earlier, they do break easily, so it's a good idea to make a few extras. They really do add a nice touch to cupcakes, or mini cakes!
