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.

Quick tip on how to attach your fondant accents to your fondant covered cake.

Bright With White Cake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was my first use of fondant on a birthday cake for my son. The fondant was easy to use and the directions were clear. I did add some curlicues and he loved it. He even took it to the nursing home where he volunteers to share with employees there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm used to using a MMF that I make myself, but was eager to try regular Fondant. I recreated this cake on a cake dummy, just to be able to practice and get familiar with how actual fondant works. It was also my first try with bows. I love the directions on this idea - it's very step-by-step. Impressed with the outcome. I used pastels instead of the neons, but the effect was the same. Would be perfect for any celebration.
