What is the best way to attach ribbon to a cake that has been covered with buttercream? Any tips are greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Tammie

I lightly press it to the sides of the cake and then attach it with corsage pins. Not sure that is proper cake etiquette, but that's what I do.

I cut a toothpick in half and used it to secure the ends of the ribbon at the back of the cake...

I use corsage pins too. But I also spray my ribbon lightly with Pam so that the grease doesn't leave the ribbon splotchy with grease spots. This way, the grease is intentional and evenly distributed. Works great everytime.

Just warn the cake recpient that there is a pin in the cake. icon_smile.gif
