I prefer to not use fabric ribbon, but on the rare occasions I've had to, I simply wrap it around and secure it to the cake with a pearl-head straight pin. You can also use royal icing.

Icing, or you can use a little water. Water will make the fondant sticky and will hold the ribbon to it. That is what I did for my daughters sweet 16 cake.

Hi, there are few ways to do it. You can wet the ribbon and take the excess water off and wrap it around the cake. Make sure the colour doesn't bleed before you attach it. I haven't tried this method though.

The other thing that you can do is, take one end of the ribbon and keep it in position and insert a pin just to hold it and put a little piece of double sided sticky tape on the edge of the ribbon and take the other end of the ribbon around the cake and stick that on the tape and take the pin out. (Hope it make sence)

ok...here's another question for ribbon lovers (which I happen to be from time to time!) Sorry Karen, I hope I'm hijacking your thread?!

How do you attach a satin ribbon to BC? I just recently heard that you attach the ribbon to some wax/parchment paper cut to size to make it food safe; and them attach that to the cake...so is this why I always see beautiful ribbons WITHOUT the horrifying wet look (oils from the BC)? I've tried to do this a few times, but it DID NOT look like the others I see here on CC... icon_redface.gif

Thanks Karen, for letting me 'butt' in!! icon_lol.gif

I wouldn't suggest using a pin for a cake. It's dangerous.

I would suggest you just overlap the ribbon a bit (at the ends) and then use double sided tape.
