Recently I was asked to re-create the bow cake that I had made, but in Lime green. I was really excited about this order as this is one of my favourite cakes to make. I love the impact that the bow has when constructed on the top of the cake. In additional to the bow which is made out of gumpaste I included gumpaste streamers, small balls on the end of twisted wire and 2 gumpaste models of candles…

This cake was a 7 inch chocolate cake and it really was as bright as in the photo. I used 4 different shades of green food gel which I show you in the tutorial below. I really loved how well all the tones come together and makes it really stand out.

Whilst creating this cake I decided to film a step by step tutorial to show you all the techniques that I use, from making the individual bow sections, to putting it together on top of the cake. I really hope you like this tutorial and find it useful, if you have any comments please let me know.
