I have a wedding where the bride wants ribbon put on each layer, THEN a beadwork border at the bottom of that. (Using buttercream icing).

I have found that I can take clear packaging tape & put it on the BACK of the ribbon to avoid grease absorption, but how can I do the bead work on the FRONT of the ribbon without grease marks?

Any good ideas???

Thanks!! icon_confused.gif

Test it first.

Spray the back of the whole thing with canned fat like Pam or something and just grease it out on purpose and see how that does.

I just wouldn't go there! Tell her she'll have to have fondant beadwork. Get the First Impressions pearl molds (or a border mold, whatever suits), and use that.
