AHi there. I have a wedding cake tomorrow & the top tier has a bling ribbon for the border. I've never used it before & was curious to know how to attach it to the cake without it slipping? Can I deliver it this way or should I attach it at the venue?? Thank!!

I sterilised a pin with a large head and used that to hold the back in place when I used a metal 'bling' boarder.

If the cake is covered in fondant a thick gum glue made with tylose will hold the bling band on. I have used that method with fondant many times. Here is a cake just today done in that manner.

Just use double sided tape , it attaches well , you can't see it and it comes off with the bling when you remove it.
