Can anyone point me to or explain how to apply wax paper to ribbon to put around the base of a cake? I have done a search but came up with too many posts to go through, and after the 1st page, it says there are no topics that exist...weird. Thanks!

I think you iron them together and the wax gets transfered. My preferred method tho, is just to hose the ribbon down with Pam.

Monika,

I found this one. I wonder if some of the posts that explained it were lost with the forum crisis? There is one or two people that talk about it in this post. I bet you could pm one of them and ask.

Good Luck.

Hmm. Can't help you. I've never heard of using wax paper on ribbon. What kind of ribblon?

I have had it tell me there wasn't any text a bunch of times. It is weird.

Hi,
I iron the ribbon between the wax paper coating both sides. It works great. Put some paper toweling under it to protect the ironing board and on top to protect the iron. Works great and no grease leaks through. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks, everyone for the quick replies! I was planning to iron it between wax paper. Do you have to trim the paper or do you just fold it around the ribbon? Can you see the paper at all?

The paper won't stick to it, just some of the wax.

Ok, now what's the best way to adhere the ribbon to s square, BC iced cake? Piping gel dabbed on? Water? A little BC?

I like a dab of bs or royal at the back

I attach the ribbon with one dot of BC icing to act as the glue to hold the two ends together in the back of the cake.
