We will be making a 4 tier wedding cake for the first time ever. We have
been reading books and reading some of the posting on this website, very helpful. We have 2 questions.
What is the best way to attach a ribbon on a cake?
Is it best to assemble cake & then transport or transport cakes individually then assemble at site? Our tiers will be 14", 12" 10" & 8". We were thinking about maybe assembling the two bottom 14" & 12" here at home then fininsh assembling at the reception site.

Is the cake fondant covered or BC. With fondant I attach the ribbon with piping gel..the ribbon gets darker until it dries. If it's b/c then I think that some use RI to attach at the ends. I have heard that b/c of the oil in the BC the ribbon will get darker and if this isn't acceptable some cut parchment paper and put on the back of the ribbon then attach.

As far as transporting. I would think that you can put the bottom two tiers together and the top two tier together then at the site combine the two.
