First of all, I'm new so this may be an old question but I don't even know how to search yet so please help by directing me to the right place or telling me what to do in this situation...

I try to avoid using light colored ribbon on dark tinted icing but I have one I can't avoid coming up in a few weeks. Any ideas on how to keep the ribbon from soaking up the color of the icing? I'd hate to put white satin ribbon on a dark pink cake and end up with dark pink ribbon...

Also, what is a "poll"?

line the back of the ribbon with a strip of wax paper the same size as the ribbon

Some people use adhesive contact paper..Those light on dark are a real hazzle. I avoid them too!

I really don't do anything to my ribbon and it turns out fine. I hope I didn't just jinx myself!
