Learn how to make easy fondant bows with no cutters, using this step by step tutorial. Super cute for decorating cakes and cupcakes.
Today, I am going to show you how to make easy fondant bows!
This tutorial is so EASY that you DON’T even need any cutters.
I used homemade marshmallow fondant to make these bows but if you want the bows to dry really fast, I highly suggest using gum paste.
This was actually a very SMALL tiered cake although it might be looking like it’s a huge cake in these pictures…lol.
The top tier had dimensions of 3×3 and the bottom tier had dimensions of 4×3.
You can use whatever cake recipe you like but I decided to make carrot cake and filled it with buttercream icing (I bought way tooo many carrots at my last grocery run…heheh!)
As for colors, I have been DIGGING the gray and pink shades for a little while now.
I had no idea they would look so beautiful and ELEGANT on a cake!
To learn how to make easy fondant bows, you will need the following supplies:
And here are the steps:
Roll out a long thin strip of pink fondant.
Use a pizza cutter to cut off the sides so that you have a smooth and long rectangular strip.
Fold over one side of the strip into a loop.
Fold the other side of the strip into a loop.
Press the center of the loop to secure the bow.
Cut off excess fondant with a sharp knife.
Place this bow on wax paper and spray it with golden color mist.
Then, spray it with silver color mist.
You can follow the same steps to make smaller bows too.
Let these easy fondant bows dry and harden for about 24 hours.
Then, fill and frost your cakes and cover them in gray fondant.
Stack them on top of another and stick the pink bows on this tiered cake with royal icing.
And you are done!
Well, that’s all for today.
