I want to attach ribbon around the sides of a fondant covered board without having icing bleeding through, any suggestions?
are you planning to use a fabric ribbon or fondant ribbon?
Usually, the sides of my board isn't covered in fondant. I usually cut it on the top edge. If you are concered about bleeding, line the back of the ribbon with tape. Once you have done that, you can use double sided tape to stick the ribbon to the sides of the cake board.
fabric ribbon. Will the tape stick to the fondant?
I guess next time I will not cover the sides of the board with fondant- that makes more sense.
That I am not sure. It woudn't hurt to try. I mean it wouldn't be eaten anyway right?
I do not let the fondant go down the sides of my cake board either. I cut at the top edge and then it does not bleed when I attach the ribbon.
I use straight pins to secure my ribbons. The heads of the pins show, but it is never a distraction. I have attached ribbons with little dots of royal icing too - but pins are so much faster!
I honestly wouldn't suggest pins because you'll never know if someone takes it off and falls on the cake =]
I usually use a wooden homemade board so pins wouldn't stick in it anyways,
But I will try only going to the top of the board instead of all the way down. Thanks everyone.
