Is there a special kind of food-safe ribbon that is used to decorate a wedding cake? (Or do you have to do something to regular ribbon to make if food-safe?) Are there any sites that are a good resource for ribbon to use for wedding cakes? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Never done it, but I've read on here that some people put parchment or wax paper strips behind the ribbon so it doesn't touch the cake. I think it's more of a grease stain on the ribbon issue though, rather than food safety, but it should solve your worry anyway!

No problem! By the way, your cookies are really cute! I'm just starting to try my hand at decorated cookies - not so hot yet though! I'm not so sure that I have the necessary patience to really do them right. Good luck with your cake!
