I am needing to make some satin brown ribbon grease proof for wrapping around the bottom of a wedding cake this weekend.
In the past I have always greased the ribbon with crisco prior to putting on the cake and it works great. This time...since the ribbon is a dark brown...it almost looks black if I pre-grease with the crisco.
Anyone know how to make it grease proof???
Any suggestions would be helpful. The cake is for Sat. 6/21
Thanks to all!
iron some wax paper on the back of it... do a search here and there were a couple of discussions about this same thing....
I "iron" mine with wax paper. Cut a piece of wax paper the length of the ribbon and twice as wide. Sandwich the ribbon in between, place a towel or other cloth on top and iron on low until the wax is "transferred" to the ribbon. I've done this a few times and it hasn't failed me yet, plus it's easy to do.
This is a post from someone earlier today on how she uses the wax paper method... sorry I forgot to get her name....
Thanks for your response.
I had read that a really long time ago but could not remember exactly what the process was.
I waxed ribbon for a wedding cake a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't believe how well the ribbon held up with the buttercream icing.
