I am making my brother's wedding cake at the end of December. I am also a bridesmaid, my son is the ringbearer, and my daughter the flower girl. Talk about STRESS!

LOL... I digress.

I am looking into doing some stenciling on his cake, which will be covered in fondant. Howevewr, I have no clue about them... where to buy them, how to use them, what to use them with as far as coloring, etc. I just know that I think they look really cool! HELP! ; ) I also thought I would maybe look into some filigree cutters.

And as for ribbon... what is the best way to make it adhere to a cake? Mine will be fondant, but I am curous about buttercream too. Someone mentioned using glucose? Is that the best way?

Thanks in advance!!!

There is a website that only sells stencils that is called designerstencils. C O M.
global sugar art sells them too. If you want to practice before buying online go to Michael's and check their stencils. I've used them and they are fine too! I just like the pattern on the "cake stencils" better, but you might find one you like there.

No idea how to do the ribbon....

I always just wrap the fondant ribbon on and smooth it gently. I've never had it come off. I agree with Vagostino, practice the stenciling.

I think she means how to apply real ribbon on a fondant or buttercream cake...

Oh. I heard her say mine will be fondant, so I assume she ment a fondant ribbon. dunce.gif You just wrap it around and either pin it or you can use royal icing to attach. As far as placing on buttercream, its the same, BUT theres something you need to do to the ribbon to prevent it from absorbing the grease and for the life of me my mind is drawing a blank.

I think ppl iron the ribbon on waxed paper to transfer the wax onto the ribbon, and put that side against the cake. Others just make the ribbon greasy so its all greasy, not just in spots.

I stenciled the pattern on this cake with lightly thinned (wodka) sugarflair paste color. In my opinion this method is so much easier than stenceling with RI...
