I have no idea how to word this question but I hope you guys get what I'm trying to ask lol! I'm trying to get this effect on a cake:

 

I'll probably use the wilton ribbon cutter for all the lines on the sides but how would I go about covering the top of each tier?? I've had a similar problem trying to get a lid on a Tiffany box cake so I guess this is a similar scenario. For the tiffany box cake i just put the fondant on and trimmed the excess off.  The only problem was that the lines were terribly uneven and I want to try to fix that problem if possible.  PLEASE HELP! icon_cry.gif

 

And also, how would you put ribbons on large tiers like 10in and 12in without breaking the ribbon? I would appreciate any advice!

I have not used mine yet but wilton makes a round cutter. it has a center point and it slides out to the size you want. perfect circle. on a square I measured the top and added 2 inches and cut. for example my cake was 9 inches square after frosting and I cut a 11 inch square. putting it on top was a booger but my ********** MAT helped a lot!

Hmm...I'll have to look into the cutter! Is this it? http://content.vcommerce.com/products/715/136879715/fullsize.jpg?1395467513
