I did not watch the show, but it makes sense that masking off ( I am assuming fondant) with painters tape would work.
Painters tape won't pull off paint off a wall so I guess it would not hurt the fondant finish.
I use painters tape on back of my grandkids art work to put on wall for display lol.

I wouldn't think painter's tape would be food safe, but then again, I'm not sure I would do some of the things I've seen on that show.

You could try emailing Scotch and see what they have to say about the ingredients/chemicals in the product. It works great for painting walls though, LOL!

Send an email to Mary Alice at CCC. I think that is painter's tape though.

I would email Mary ALice from CCC too. But in the meantime, what if you put the painters tape on with the sticky side out. The other side that would be touching the cake is just paper. You could just attached the 2 ends of the tape where they meet.
