If your cake is iced in BC you can put wax paper or I've used clear contact paper and put the sticky side on the ribbon........which worked great. I don't think it needs anything if you use fondant.

It also depends on the ribbon that you use. If you have doubts you can put a dab of BC on the ribbon and wait a day or so, go back and see if it's absorbed the grease or not. Satin ribbons tend to do this more. I have an anniversary cake that I did (in my photos) and it was more of a transparent ribbon (tulle type) and I didn't have any problems with it.
