I usually do fondant wedding cakes. So, any ribbon works fine. However, I have a buttercream cake coming up that will be wrapped in ribbon. What ribbon should be used. I know satin won't work due to "spotting" from the icing. What do you suggest.

I will greatly appreciate the advise! icon_biggrin.gif

You can always line the ribbon with wax paper and then apply it to the buttecream cake to minimize the spotting.

Put wax paper on the back of the ribbon, cover with towel, iron with a hot iron. The wax will come off of the paper and it will seal the back of the ribbon for you. icon_smile.gif

I only use fondant ribbon also. It's the only ribbon that's food safe.

Thank you all for taking the time to respond! thumbs_up.gif I learn something new everyday! I love CC! I am going to try the wax paper...I already suggested the fondant ribbon. However, the bride wasn't a big fan of the idea. Sometimes you can't persuade them to go any different than their original thoughts.
