i want to add ribbon around my cake board that will be covered in fondant.
my question is:
do i put the ribbon over the fondant OR do i only cover with fondant to the edge of the board then add the ribbon.
thanks in advance!
If I were doing it, I would probably trim the fondant to the edge of the board and do the ribbon around the edge of the board - no fondant underneath it.
both techniques will work...however, i cover the edges of my cakeboards with masking tape, cover only the top of my board with fondant and then wrap the edges with ribbon
Hi Aundrea, I have done it both ways. I personally think it looks better to roll the fondant over the sides. That way, there are no "ribbon & fondant seams" to match up
ok thanks for the quick replies. it will be awhile before i will be on that step. im working on this cake all evening. probably until sun up!
i will let you know how it works out for me.
i edge all my fondant coered boards with ribbon that sets of the colour them of the cake. i trim fondant to edge of board then glue the ribbon around the edge i buy 6ml ribbon which is perfect for my cake board thickness and fondant thickness that way i don't need to trim excess ribbon
What do you attach the ribbon with? How does it stick?
Glue stick - the kind they use at school. Its non toxic, so no problem. I cover with fondant to the edge, and ribbon on the side - roll you roller over fondant again, so no seam shows.
I put ribbon on all of my cake bases. I bring the fondant just to the edge (not down on the edge) and then hot glue my ribbon to the edge.
