Reply Attaching ribbon to fondant?

Tiffany Palmer ...

I have seen some use little pins in the back to secure it, but that I’m not sure I would feel very comfortable with. Last time I attached ribbon to a cake I used crisco spray on the whole ribbon so the color was even. It darkened the blue a bit, but worked wonderfully to stay in place. I used a dab of buttercream on the very back where the ribbon met to secure it in place. I did have a border around the base though, so I’m not sure if it would hold in place without the ribbon. I would try maybe asking Cotton and Crumbs on facebook….she has absolutely STUNNING cakes/cupcakes and uses ribbon on her cakes a lot. Maybe she’ll be able to point you in the right direction. =)
