Desperaetly in need of help from the experts. How do i secure ribbon and lace to a fondant wedding cake and hide the seam and make it stick? No-one seems to be able to offer me any advise on this topic. Help urgently needed.
I use double sided cellotape and always place a small bow to hide the join although lately I find it doesn't have as much stick as it used to.
I use a pin. sometimes two so it looks like little buttons. And make sure the chef knows they are pins!
i use piping gel
I line the back of the ribbon with clear contact paper and then either use frosting to stick it together or a corsage pin. I have never wanted to hide the seam, but I think a bow (like Briarview suggested) would look great!
I use the pins with little pearls on the ends (maybe those are corsage pins?) I folded the end of the ribbon over on itself to make a nice edge.
I've just used a dab of buttercream or RI to stick the ends of the ribbon together and it worked fine....learned to do it that way from a baker who makes many wedding/shower cakes w/ribbons - that's how she does it too.
I wish there was a great way to attach it so it doesn't move or slip. I use double sided tape but I still have problems getting it to stick. I think I need to lightly brush off all traces of icing sugar on the fondant first then attach the ribbon so it has better sticking power I'll keep practicing. I rarely use ri so it seems like too much work to make it just for a few dabs to stick to a ribbon...the pin idea sounds better and better all the time. Maybe bobby pins with cute crystal decos on them - pretty yet not dangerous
Thank you so much everyone for your help! I used the peearl top pins and they worked out great!
