I have been searching for ribbon to put on my daughter's wedding cake. Wedding date Nov. 21. What is the best type of ribbon to put on a buttercream icing cake. The baker did not suggest one. I have been looking for 1" double satin ribbon. Am I going in the right direction. Thanks so much.
Most of the time a 1" ribbon would work just fine. It really depends on the look you are going for. Standard size for cake tiers is 4" tall, so a 1" ribbon will still give you 3" of cake showing. The baker probably didn't give you specifics about the ribbon because he/she wants for the design of the cake to be what you and your daughter want. Opinions vary on these sorts of things, so the size ribbon the baker prefers may not be what you, the client, prefers. KWIM?
Thanks so much April. What I was wondering if I should get satin ribbon or some other type of ribbon. I greatly appreciate your help.
You can use satin ribbon or grosgrain (sp?). Do not get wired ribbon, but other than that any kind will be fine. Most of the time, brides bring me 1" satin ribbon.
Thank you so much. You have really helped me. Hugs, Brenda
You're welcome, dear. Any time. Hope the wedding goes smoothly.
Whats the best way to keep the moisture from the buttercream from soaking into the ribbon and leaving a water stain or line?
