I'm making a buttercream covered cake for my hubby's b-day Sat. I want to wrap a ribbon around the base of it for the bottom border. I have the ribbon, and I read to iron wax paper onto the back to make it food safe, but how do I put it on the cake with some semblance of neatness? I imagine squishing the buttercream underneath so that there are bulges, having the ribbon not flat, etc. I'm sure practice and trial and error would be of great help, but I don't have much time for that before hubby's b-day. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! TIA!
