I did a cake for a baby shower last weekend. They loved it, but did say that when they took the ribbon off of it, the icing came off with it. What did I do wrong? I waited until it was fairly crusted before assembling the ribbon on it. Any suggestions would be so appreciated, I have a cake to do for this weekend with a similar design and I want to get it right this time.

Thanks

For me, I cut a strip of waxed paper the length of the ribbon and put it behind the ribbon. I cut the waxed paper just a hair shorter and take a dab of my hot glue and put the ends of the ribbon together. I use satin ribbon most of the time and this helps to keep the grease from the cake on the ribbon.

Good luck.

Thanks so much for the tip. I did use wax paper, but she said it stuck to it anyway, and that the icing came off entirely around the ribbon. Maybe I should let the icing crust completely this time? Thanks for your input icon_smile.gif

Gees- that's too bad. I'm doing cakes this weekend and I'm using the same method. I'll let you know.
