pink bow cake 1

Who knew gray and pink colors would work so beautifully together, especially on a cake?!

I made this simple and elegant pink bow cake over the weekend with that color scheme and just decorated with bows.

To make this cake, you will need the following supplies:

– This is a very small tiered cake. The top tier was about 3 in x 3 in and the bottom tier was about 4 in x 3 in. But, you can apply today’s tutorial on a bigger cake too.

These are the instructions:

Step 1:
Roll out a long rope out of pink fondant and flatten it with fingers or a rolling pin.

Step 2:
Use a pizza cuter to cut off excess until you are left with a long rectangular shape.

Step 3:
Flip one end of the rectangular piece into a loop, as shown in the picture.

Step 7:
Also, spray some silver mist all over the bow.

Step 8:
Let the bows dry completely (I let them dry overnight so they become hard).
The next day, prepare your cakes, frost them, cover them in gray fondant and stack them.
Stick the bows on the cake, using royal icing or corn syrup.
And you are done!
