Just wondering if it is safe to put a ribbon boarder on buttercream? Will the ribbon get greasy and show? And one more question I have seen some wedding cakes done with scolls type designs on the side is this fondant covered then buttercream scroll or all buttercream? Just wondering if fondant would be alright with buttercream on it or will something bad happen to the fondant if I do this? Thanks for the help icon_smile.gif

They usually do royal icing on fondant from what I've done. I use a crusting buttercream and it's never bothered with my ribbon. IT all depends on what you use. Good luck!! I've heard some people iron wax paper too on the backs of their ribbon , but I've never tried that.

Faffy, you can stencil SugarVeil to make your scrolls, then peel to place on ganache, buttercream, fondant, and even whipped cream-iced cakes. And see the "How To" forum (just posted) for pictures of SugarVeil ribbons. Please let us know if we can answer any questions. Thanks much - Michele at SugarVeil
