When you make your fondant strips for bows how do you get them to stay up, mine fall down.

Helen - from Charleston, WV

I like to roll up a few paper towels and use them as supports for my loops. The number of paper towels I use depends on how big my bow is, and how high the loops should be. I fold the fondant strip over the rolled up paper towels on the right, and then do the same thing on the left, joining the loops at the center of the bow. I leave the paper towels inside each of the loops until the bow is hard and dry, then slide them right out.
