i usually cover my cake boards on with fondant and then trim, with ribbon but i always have bother getting it to stick ive tried a good few non toxic glues but the dont set or stick i also have put a drawing pin in at the back but that only holds it in that spot and doesnt look to profesional... any ideas?? or how to ye cover your cake boards..thanks
I use tacky glue. I have a friend who uses double-sided tape. Both methods work. Tacky glue is cheaper in the long run
I had a lot of trouble with this too. In the beginning, I'd use a little dot of glue every so often around the board. The problem with this is that you could see the glue through the ribbon. I've now use non-toxic white glue and I lightly paint it (with a brush) along the edge of the board. The ribbon adhers nicely and it can't be seen through the ribbon.
Hope this helps.
I've been using piping gel, however, I can't get it very smooth looking. I've tried glue, piping gel and tape and there are always bumps coming thru from the pleats on the side of the board.
I use a craft glue gun, works like a charm.
I use a hot glue gun too and only grograin ribbon. Looks great!
I do exactly what Mexx suggested. I "paint" the glue (I just use elmers or tacky...both seem to work). Then press the ribbon all the way around. I do pin it in the back where the ribbon ends meet just until the glue is dry. It dries very quick.
