In advance: Make bow using 50/50 fondant and gum paste blend. Let dry.
Tint white fondant using yellow neon fondant.
Prepare and cover 2-layer cake with fondant; smooth with Fondant Smoother. For ribbons, roll out fondant/gum paste blend 1/16 in. thick. Cut 4 strips 8 x 1 1/4 in. wide. Attach to cake with gum glue adhesive. Attach bow to cake top with adhesive. Attach large and small confetti to cake top and sides with tip 2 dots of icing.
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.

I saw this pictured on the cover of your Wilton Decorating with Fondant books, and decided to make it for the daughter of a friend of mine for her birthday. It was a HUGE hit and everyone loved it! The bow was fun and easy to make, after seeing your step-by-step techniques in the same booklet! Your specific notes about the dots/sprinkles used saved me so much time and were perfect! Thanks for a beautiful and versatile (colors can be changed so easily) cake idea!!
