Anyone have any ideas about using satin ribbon and it showing grease from your buttercream through it? I know that this has probably been posted a few hundred times and answered so I apologize in advance....

I think I heard somewhere you could soak it in water? Or make a backing of some kind, I'm not sure...

I just put a strip of waxed paper behind it (cut to the same size so it doesn't show, of course).

I cut a piece of parchament paper and place it behind the ribbon. It usually works great, but sometimes the top of the ribbon still soaks up a little grease. It typically isn't too noticeable.

I tried greasing the ribbon a couple of months ago. It looked good up until the point when the AC went out in the venue. It was 90 degrees inside, and the ribbon got really wet from the cake sweating. icon_lol.gif
