Finish off your dessert table with
easy-to-make fondant bows!
To make the fondant bow for the
centrepiece cake, roll out some sugar paste until 4mm thick and cut
into two strips. Moisten each end of one strip and press together
to make a loop. Repeat. Push the two loops together, end to end,
and cover the join with a sugar-paste rectangle (the knot). Cut two
tails. Attach with edible glue.
