Hello....
I see many gorgeous cakes that are done either with bc or fondant. Ho do you use ribbon to make abstract shapes and criss cross with them getting greasy?

I actually rinse my ribbon out, let them dry and coat them with crisco so they will not spot with grease on the cake. They are greased throughout to start with. It does make the color a little deeper though.

Thanks! I will try that...very good to know since so many people don't want fondant on their cake.

I use clear packing tape on the back of my ribbon. Works every time!

I've also heard to put wax paper on the back of the ribbon
