How to attach ribbon to the sides of cakeboard? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
I generally pin it on using decorative pins. I can pull the ribbon taut, pin, pull, pin, and then fold in the cut ends and double pin those.

I buy cake drums with a perfectly smooth edge. They are hard as rocks but light as a feather, and have no bend or flexibility whatsoever. Unfortunately, the only place I have ever found them online is from the big bad cake supply store "whch shall not be named". But I am more or less spoiled by those drums, and addicted.

They are foil covered, but the edge has a strip of thick paper wrapped around, so there is zero folding/pleating/bumpiness that you get with most drums.

Thanks for your reply Rae!! but I'm a little confused, does this mean that you use the pins as part of the actual decoration? or are they hidden somehow??

If my crystal, colored, or pearl headed pins fit into the deco, I use them to enhance it. If it needs to be more subtle, I use tiny headed silver or gold pins.

I've just come across this post, have you tried just using a pin? I find this works best for me, just pull the ribbon really tight and then slide a pin in at the back. This was you have no mess of glue or tape. You might also be interested in this new site I've come across, I couldn't live without it now, it's called www.bakingit.com. I use to help calculate how much ribbon I will need for a large cake, that way I don't over buy like I usually do.
