Hey all! Quick question.. can you put real ribbon on a fondant covered cake without any problems (sitting right against the fondant)? I know that when you put real ribbon on bc cakes, it can cause a problem with the grease staining the ribbon. Thanks!

I put real ribbon on a fondant tier cake and it worked wonderfully!!

I do it all the time. Instead of securing the ribbon with a dab of icing (which always leaves a mark, in my opinion), I cut the ribbon end on an angle, then secure it with a pretty pearl-tipped straight pin. This is in the back, of course, but it looks very pretty.

I use real ribbon on fondant too but I attach it at the ends with icing. When I use icing all around it looks messy.

I don't use any grease in the fondant so the ribbon stays clean. A dab of RI will secure it.
