This may be a dumb question but how do you attach satin ribbon to a fondant cake for a border? Do you use double face tape or some other method? I wanted to use it on a cake this weekend for the first time. Thanks!
I have used a dot of icing as glue or straight pins in the past.
depending on the type of ribbon it is.....
I usually use some buttercream or royal icing and dap some at the beginning to hold it in place and then again when my ribbon comes back around. Sometimes I use royal or buttercream around the complete ribbon... it just depends on if the ribbon is see through or if the buttercream will bleed.
I would not use the double sided tape.
I prefer to use straight pins, but that's a personal preference.
Blob of RI or some sugar glue
I brush off all excess icing sugar from the bottom border then attach the ribbon with double sided tape - seems like the only way to really secure it strongly. It never fails
I've always just used buttercream. I've not had a problem with it yet.
I am probably poking a bear with this...you guys know that straight pins are not food safe, right?
