I was wondering if someone could tell me how to use ribbon on buttercream? The times I have tried the grease soaked into it and discolored it. Most of the prople I make cakes for don't like fondant. Help Please!!!!

I have only done this a couple of time so far. I spray PAM on the back side of the ribbon and rub it into the ribbon to keep it from soaking up the grease. Then I attach it to the cake. Hope this helps.

Ribbon on buttercream - most people put some sort of clear tape on the backside of the ribbon before applying to the cake to help as a barrier to eliminate the grease from absorbing onto the ribbon. I hope this helps you. If you search the posts for "ribbons" you'll get alot of hits on the subject. thumbs_up.gif

i was going to suggest the same as BJ...that is what my aunt does and instructed me to do if i ever had one with ribbon. Clear packing tape works great for this and it just comes right off the cake for serving.
