You can paint it with luster dust.

there are rolling pins you can get that add fabric like texture to it as well that with the luster dust you have a fondant ribbon. good luck.. icon_smile.gif

I am not sure...however, I looked at a cake last night and the lady said that the bow was done to have a satin effect on it in her description. I can't remember her name or the name of the cake to search it for you.....sorry! However, the cake was white and had people's name wrote around the sides on three lines in red and green and it had a red bow on top. Maybe she'll see the thread or else you can go through the Christmas pictures and look for the cake yourself (138 pages....I searched the first 17 pages and it wasn't on those).

Sorry I couldn't be of more help....Good luck!

To make the ribbon in fondant appear shiny you use luster dusts. If Its white you can use pearl dust, this one has a very nice pearly shine. With color ribbons you just find a luster dust that is closes to the color you are using in your ribbon.
