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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These mini's were fun to make. The only issue I really had with them was that I used coconut cake, and that is just not a firm enough cake to hold up under the fondant. They still came out beatiful and I would definitely make them again!
