What do you use to attach a ribbon to the bottom of a fondant cake? It needs to be FDA approved. Vanilla?
I rarely put real ribbon on a cake but when it is requested, I use straight pin with a pearl head to secure it in the back.
Thanks PinkZiab! That is a great idea! I never would have thought of it and I think I even have some. Do you cut the pin down in size!
Nope... just stick it into the cake and it'll hold securely.
Thanks again! That's awesome!
Another method is to cut the ribbon to the desired size, dip it in water, run your thumb and the finger next to it through the ribbon to drain the water. then stick it to the cake. it would stick because water and sugar produces a sticky effect. I hope this works for you.
I'll try your method too Lami! Thank you very much!!
I use a dab of royal at the back.
i use a pearl headed pin to secure in place while i wrap around the cake then use a blob of fondant glue fix in place then repin until dry then remove the pin (I have stupidly always worried about someone not removing the pin if i was to leave it)
I use a bit of fondant/gumpaste glue. I would never put a pin in because I would worry that someone might leave it in the cake. I also have put a little bow, button or other decoration over the seam to dress up the back a bit.
