You will need a mat, rolling pin, ruler, knife (and/or pizza cutter) and fondant tylose mix or gumpaste

Image

1. Roll out the fondant and cut it into 1″ x 5″ pieces.  You will need up to 12 pieces but make a few extra in case of breakage

Image

2. Fold each piece in half

Image

3. Cut the corners off of each piece

Image

4.  Glue the bottom of each loop closed

Image

5. Cut one more small piece 1″ x 3″, fold it, glue it but do not cut off the corners

Image

6. Rest all the pieces on their sides and leave them to dry for 24 hours
Image

7.  Cut out a 2″ circle and glue 6 pieces onto it Image

8. add a bit of fondant into the empty space in the middle and add more glue
Image

9. Add the top layer (I used another 6 pieces because of the alternating colours, normally I would use 5 pieces on top)
Image

10.  Add the top loop
Image
And you are done!  Give it a day to dry and add it to your cake 🙂
