Gumpaste Present / Gift Bow Tutorial

I have been so excited to share this cake with you. When it comes to Christmas and birthdays I love wrapping presents and always stick on the foil gift bows. This cake is made to look just like that. I have also created a video tutorial which shows exactly how to make the bow ontop, which can be found below. The bow itself is made from 17 gumpaste loops, in different sizes, all placed to look like the real thing. I have also added ribbon streamers at the sides to look like the ends of the ribbon. The bow was made from gumpaste, and I mixed half Renshaw flower & modelling paste in red with half of the Squires gumpaste in white to make this really pretty dark pink colour.

The bow itself sits on a 7 inch square cake which is 3 inches in height. As you will see in the video I created a card template the same size as the end of the cake with the corner cut off. I then used this as a guide and using my modelling tool, created these lines at the end of the cake to look like it had actually been wrapped. I really love this effect and think this would make a great cake to give to someone as a present.

In the video below I show you step by step how to make and put together the bow from the photos above. I really hope you enjoy the video and find it useful. The bow can be made in any colour and size, you just need to alter the size of the loops to give the perfect bow for your cake…
