I've been asked to make a wedding cake. The bride wants an ivory square cake with clover ribbon at the bottom of each layer. The thing is she doesn't want the cake to be covered in fondant. My question is do I make the ribbon out of fondant or do I buy a ribbon to wrap around each cake layer or do a buttercream ribbon?

this may sound stupid and I don't mean it to be but.... I would ask the bride what she wanted

if you do use real ribbon, make sure to cut wax or parchment paper the same width as the ribbon and put that under the ribbon before you put it on the cake. The grease from the buttercream will soak through and discolor your ribbon! I have learned that the hard way!!!

What's wrong with fondant ribbon on a buttercream cake!

I do fondant ribbons on bc all the time. I rarely get an order for a fondant cake.

I ended up going with ribbon because of transportation I couldn't do fondant.
