I apologize if this is already on here, but I couldn't find anything when searching. I'm wrapping a BC frosted cake with ribbon (well, for border) this weekend which I have never done before. Do I just seal it with a pin? Also, does the ribbon pick up grease from the BC? Thanks ahead of time! I know y'all will come thru for me!
If you let the bc crust well, (for a few hours) then put the ribbon on you shouldn't have any problem with grease. I do this all the time. You can secure it with royal icing or use a large pin. Some say not to use the pin, but I do it because it stays put. Wash it with soap and make sure who ever gets the cake knows it is there and pulls it out with the ribbon.
