How do I attach fondant ribbons to a buttercream cake? I am making a 3 tier wedding cake in buttercream and the bride wants fondant ribbons along the bottom of each tier.

Take a paint brush & lightly wet the back of the fondant with water & it should stick without any problem. thumbs_up.gif

Use some piping gel or white decorating gel to attach the fondant to the buttercream {same thing as if you were covering cake with fondant}
