Below you will find step-by-step instructions for creating a gumpaste bow. When working with gumpaste, you should remember to work quickly. It will dry fast which is why decorators like to use it for decorations. If you are a new decorator then try mixing fondant and gum paste. The fondant will dry faster with the gum paste in it but give you time to make the bow before it dries out.

  • Roll the gumpaste out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut 2 long strips of the same size and 1 strip 2/3 the size of the larger strips. I am not giving exact measurements because they will vary depending on the size of your bow.

  • Make a small accordion fold at each end of the small strip and loop them together. Put a small amount of water on each end and press together. Take a small amount of tissue to place inside the loop so that it holds it's shape.

  • Repeat this process for the 2 larger strips.
  • Once the small loop is hard enough to hold it's own shape, remove the tissue and place the ends of the 2 larger loops inside. Secure with a small amount of water and press. Let dry over night.
