I am making a wedding cake and it will be RV with cream cheese frosting. I have yet to find a cream cheese frosting recipe that crusts that isn't too sweet. This cake is to have ribbon around the bottom of each tier. Is this impossible? I just know as soon as I attempt to put the ribbon on, all my hard work will smear. Any opinions are appreciated..icon_smile.gif

I use the crusting cream cheese frosting in the recipe section

I've put a ribbon on non-crusting BC. You just have to make sure it is REALLY cold & solid before you put the ribbon onto the cake so it doesn't dig into the soft frosting.

I think some folks iron the backside of the ribbon w/wax paper or the waxy side of freezer paper to make a moisture barrier.

Thanks, Kristy.. It is helpful to know someone has successfully done it. icon_smile.gif Fertluv3, I don't like my cream cheese frosting very sweet and all crusting recipes call for way too much sugar.

How do you put the ribbon on the cakes without getting those ugly grease marks? Do yo uknow what I mean? I am still a newbie and tried it once and it was a hot mess!

I cut a piece of baking/grease proof paper a bit smaller than ribbon and place that aroundthe cake first, and then put ribbon on top. HTH
