Does anyone have a good way to attach satin ribbon to fondant covered cakes without having it show through the ribbon? I've tried buttercream, royal icing, even vanilla but they all show through the ribbon.
If anyone has a method for attaching ribbon that WORKS, I'd appreciate your help. In the past I've resorted to using stright pins, which works okay on light colored ribbon, but today's ribbon is chocolate brown and the pin heads show.
Thanks for any advice you can give me!
Could you not use decorative hat or corsage pins as part of the design.
Or cover the top of the straight pin with an acrylic rhinestone.
I use both all the time depending on the style of the cake.
I have two ideas- I haven't tried either yet, but i think they might be worth a try.
1 - how about a small piece of double stick tape attached to the ribbon
2 - how about a piece of single stick tape attached to the underside of the ribbon then a dab of royal icing on top of the tape. I don't think it will bleed through.
Either take a brush with some water and and moisten the area where the ribbon goes so it glues well..or wet the whole ribbon...Or the pin on the back where they close works well too.
Great ideas! I think, for today, I might try the tape, but the other ideas are worth trying, too. I appreciate your help.
