I've just made my very first wedding cake for a friends parents wedding tomorrow. It's huge 3 tier one (I got a little to adventurous seeing as this is only my 4th cake!) and I'm adding a bow and brooch to the top tier.
I've put the ribbon around the bake and made a separate 4 loop bow with a nice pearl brooch attached. The question is, how do I attach this to the cake. There's not much of an available lip for it to just sit on it. I'm worried that if I use royal icing to attach it it may seep through the ribbon?
I'll try and add a picture.
