Top Tip for Ribbons...

This little tip has been popular on my page so thought I’d share here too. I was struggling to match the ribbon to this cake, having already airbrushed the wafer paper flower and lettering for a perfect match. Ribbon shopping proved fruitless so I tried airbrushing pale pink ribbon and voila! Worked a treat. It was a dinky doodle colour so dried quickly, don’t know how well slower drying colours would work. Just sharing in case it helps anyone :)
