Hi, I'm Christy Vega-Gluch from Phoenix Cake Company, and I'm going to show you how to make a two-toned fondant bow. I started with some dark chocolate brown fondant and some pink fondant. I use a pre-made fondant but you can also use your own marshmallow fondant if you want. typically I do these bows at least a day ahead, sometimes two days. So you want to roll each piece out. You can use, depending on the width of your bow, and it can be any size you want. I'm going to use this ruler here and you're going to cut around the edge here, get your extra pieces off. Now I do it this way, just because I'm not messing the extra pieces of fondant up. If you were to lay it right on the top, these little extra pieces are going to have pink and brown in it so I kind of redo the strips, pre-cut them first and then I lay them on top of each other. Okay, so depending on what color you want on the inside or the outside, we're going to get some water, okay so you put your water down with a little paintbrush here. This is going to act as your glue. Don't put too much because you don't want it dripping everywhere. Water is like acid to fondant. It will just start breaking it down. So you want to be very careful not to get a lot on there. So once the water is on there you're going to put your outside piece on the top, use your ruler to kind of get those together. You want to cut your end pieces off, pick this up. So once you have your strips together, a little bit of water right in the center, push that together, get your other side, push that together. If you want it to dry with a bigger loop, more rounded you can get a piece of paper towel and just roll it up and you just stick that in there, just for support and it will actually dry like that. So there's that and then all we have to do is our little centerpiece there. So you're going to roll this out, cut clean edges on either side and this is going to be the wrap around piece that's going to go around the center, put a little bit of water down, right in the middle of the bow there, wrap it around. These are really fun to do. You can do these in a variety of colors, teal and blue, black and pink is really pretty. So just play around with it, they're a lot of fun to do.
