I need help! I am making a 2 tier wedding cake with a fondant band in the middle that is going to have a lace embroidery on the top and bottom. My two concerns are the band drying out and cracking when I'm wrapping it around the cake since it will take quite a bit of time to cut and apply the lace. And two making sure the band is PERFECTLY in the middle of the cake and not wiggly. Any ideas or advice?!?

Much appreciated,

I have done lace applicades on cakes, and I cut them out ahead of time, and placed them in a ziploc bag, it worked great. I did it a week ahead of time, and they were a little firm but still soft, it was easier to place on the cake. I also did a cake with several fondant bands that went around the cake, I used a seam gauge to measure around the cake to keep the bands even.
