What's the best way to attach a real ribbon border to a fondant cake? It seems like this should be so easy, yet mine never really wants to cooperate. What do I do???

I have pins which I sterilise which have a huge crystal on them. I make the customer aware that they need to remove them before serving. They're big enough that they can't be missed. You can see it on this picture where I used it as part of the decoration. Usually I put them at the back of the cake.

The other alternative is a blob of royal icing. I prefer the pins as it's a waste making up a batch of RI just to glue the ribbon on. Each to there own though icon_smile.gif

I wet the ribbon and then run it through my fingers to get as much water out as possible. The damp ribbon sticks like glue!

I use clear glue dots (like for scrap booking) at the seam at the back. Glue goes between the ribbon overlap, so none touches the cake.

Works for me
