I am making my son's wedding cake in a few weeks. The cake is going to have polka dots on the fondant ribbons around the base of each tier. The tiers are 6" 8" 10" rounds and a 12" square bottom. The questions I have are: Would it be easier to make the dots out of piped royal icing? Cut them out of fondant and stick each individual dot on with glue? Cut the dots in the ribbon itself and allow the color beneath to show through the holes. I am going to try to attach a sketch of the cake so it is clearer what I am talking about.
Thanks so much for your help!
