Cake Decorating with a Chocolate Bow

lilgi | Jun 8, 201110:49 AM     20

I'll be making an Opera Cake for a very special person in a few weeks and want to decorate it just as shown:
http://lebleufrance.blogspot.com/2011...

At first I wasn't sure if it had to be made by using fondant or if you can use chocolate, but I'd prefer to do chocolate. Information seems to be limited on this, maybe I'm not searching in the right places. I'm open to doing a fondant version if it's easy and realistic looking and I'm sure I have dark brown coloring.

I've been able to come up with a few articles and short video clips but what I need is a really good step by step reference so that I can at least see if this is something I can attempt (not the creative type so I may have a huge chocolate mess on my hands.) Anything you can think of that would make this real easy would be greatly appreciated. Thanks always!
