This is my first fondant bow. I think they are really nice on a cake and are great for a birthday if you don't know what to put on someone's cake. The cake can be any color or have any type of design to it. The bow can also be any color and have polka dots or stripes on it. This cake is covered in buttercream, but the cake can be covered in marshmallow fondant as well. If you want one of these bows on your cake, please call 4-5 days ahead because it takes that long for the bow to set up.
