Thanks! Your bows are gorgeous!
Make sure you bake your layers separately to avoid bleeding as much as possible. If it is still a problem, you can use small pieces of waxed paper as a barrier.

The angles and the creases hold the loops so they are perky. After I drench my bows, I use my fingers to shape the bows while on the cookie sheet exactly how I want them to stay. The starch just keeps them from getting pushed out of shape and makes sure they are held in a perfectly symmetrical position.
