Two-Toned Bow Tutorial

I first saw a two-toned bow on a yellow tiered cake by Sweet Picasso Cake Creations. Afterward a design popped in my head that had this bow as the centrepiece. It makes such a statement so it’s tempting to use it to highlight a cake. I try not to repeat elements too many times but have used it twice already and keep wanting to do more!

I’ve been asked by a few, how I make my two-toned bows. I’ve explained in words to a few but find that the old saying is true, “pictures speak a thousand words”. So now, you can make your own statement bow using this free tutorial.

There are many ways to make bows and trust me, I’ve tried a lot of them. I find doing it in segments to be the easiest and gives the cleanest look. For my first two-toned bow, I tried using two layers of fondant but found that too bulky to bunch together to create the creases towards the centre, and took too long so the fondant dried out before I could shape the bow loops. This is not the only way to make a bow but is definitely MY preferred way. So I hope this helps some of you who might be just starting out and is my little way to say thanks to all who follow my sugar journey!

The last two photos are the designs I’ve used this bow on…

Enjoy – Violet =D
