Create designs abloom all over with vibrant fondant flowers. Add designer decadence to your work with pillowy, polka-dotted fondant billows and delicate wafer-paper variations. Next, master the art of the gum paste bow: Create basic yet beautiful two-loop bows with graphic stripes, flowing tails and a shimmering brooch. Add dramatic dazzle to your portfolio with four- and eight-loop bows. Plus, learn how to make a fondant bow with a long, rippling tail — a breathtaking accent for extra-tall tiers. Top sumptuous textures with runway-inspired bows for cakes that always steal the show!
