Burlap on Wedding Cakes - Page 2
Cake Central Top Picks
Ask her how she feels about eating copper sulfate, pesticides and fungicides...how 'bout some super yummy Flame Stop™ (pyrolytic formula)? Surfactants, water softeners and oxidants can really enhance the flavor too! Lol...these are some of the chemicals found in burlap. You can get 100% organic burlap but it is most likely produced in a factory in India so no telling what is REALLY on it. Just say that you love her and want to please her but you can't risk making the guests sick (although most likely that won't happen)

Here's a tutorial on how to make a fondant burlap bow.
So how did you convince her?
I told her a lot of people on cake central did not think it was a good idea because of all the fibers being embedded in the icing. I also told her that we would have to announce to the guest to check their piece of cake well before they ate it due to the burlap. I then showed her on my dummy cake a very pretty satin ribbon that was the same color as the burlap with the lace on top,and she decided she liked that better. HALLELUIA!
Yeah...I could not imagine announcing to my guests "Attention ladies and gentlemen, the bride and groom will now be cutting the cake. When you get your slice please be sure to check for fibers embedded in the icing." At the end of the reception she would have had almost a whole cake to take home or throw away.
