I have a question about putting satin ribbon around the base of buttercream cakes. I have a wedding cake in about 3 weeks and the bride just informed me that she would like this. My question is-
How do I do it without the buttercream "bleeding" onto the ribbon?
I have a girl friend who lined her ribbon with acetate strips, but she was not completely satisfied with that. I'm not a "crafty" girl, so I am wondering if there's some type of shelac product to buy in a craft store that I could spray on the ribbon, but still keep it pliable and soft.
Maybe that's silly and I don't know what I'm talking about. I am a professionally trianed pastry chef/stay at home mom, now, but I've just never put fabric ribbon on my cakes before, so I am stumped!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
So try letting the buttercream crust and putting the ribbon on the cake at the last minute when you deliver it. Good luck and please post a picture!
