What's the best way to apply a fondant ribbon on a large cake 10" square.

How thin should I roll it?

If I make it in advance what's the best way to store it to keep it flexible?

THIN AS YOU CAN, MAKES IT LOOK MORE REALISTIC.

I PUT MINE ON A WAX PAPER LINED BOX OR COOKIE SHEET AND COVER WITH PLASTIC WRAP. STORE WHERE LIGHT DOESN'T FADE
YOUR COLOR.

I never thought to make a ribbon in advance since it's so quick to make and apply right to the cake. I roll the fondant throught the pasta roller to at least 3. Then after cutting the ribbon, I roll it up and then un-roll it onto the cake. If you just fondanted the cake, you won't need to add water, otherwise I add a bit of water to the fondant where I want to put the ribbon. Freezing is a good way to keep the fondant soft. It will defrost within a minute of removing it from the freezer and then you can apply it to the cake.
