Hello everyone, I have a cake due on the 12th and it will have a fondant ribbon around each tier, how do Ikeep the fondant from drying out and still be able to make them ahead of time, do I roll them around something and then put in fridge covered in plastic wrap, Thanks in advance for any suggestions/advice.

My suggestion would be to do at the same time as covering ur cake. In my opionion that sort of thing can't be done ahead of time.

you can do the actual bow part in advance and do the ribbon t hat goes around the cake at the same time you are putting the fondant on.

Definitely agree. If its your first ribbon, I highly recommend using parchment paper to cut it on, then lift it still attached to the fondant ribbon to press the ribbon onto the cake. That way it won't stretch out while you're applying it. I love parchment paper!

I wouldn't place it in the fridge though. the bow can actually be made the same time as the ribbon, just place supports in the bows and to make the ripple effect. and leave it overnight to dry. In the morning remove the supports.
If you haven't made them before do a trial run, 1 great tip I get from our fellow cc members is practice practice practiceicon_smile.gif good luck
