I haven’t make a present cake like this in years, and I forgot how cute the come out. The colors were inspired by the UCLA colors. After I covered the cake in the iconic blue, I created ribbons out of yellow fondant and laid six long pieces in equal parts on the cake. I cut more ribbons to create the bow by making a loop before tacking it place with sugar water. Sometimes the fondant will droop if it is too soft and gum paste can be added, but from my experience, if a little rolled up paper towel is inserted into the loop and left to dry for an hour or so, it will stay up just fine. I made the tag out of white fondant and wrote the names using an edible black pen. Sorry many techniques in such a little cake!
