  • Step 13

    Immediately after piping, add sprinkles to the bottom bead border and base of the cake board. 

  • Step 14

    Cover the sides and center of a gum paste bow with clear piping gel using Piping Tip #3. Dip the bow in sprinkles.

    Make a second sprinkled bow for the back of the cake.
