How much Ribbon to go round a Cake/Board?

Adding ribbon to your cake drum or cake can really finish off your masterpiece.

Attach ribbon to board edge with a glue stick or double sided tape. To ensure the ribbon is completely level when attaching to board edge, place board on flat work surface and take ribbon around the edge sitting it on the work surface as you attach it.

(Drum board edge has a 12mm depth. If cake is iced to the edge of the board a 15mm ribbon may be used)

To attach ribbon to a cake

Use royal icing or 'tacky gunge' glue (sugarpaste mashed down with water to a tacky consistency). Apply a dab of icing at a point towards the back of the cake.Take the ribbon around the cake, and with another dab of icing, secure the end of the ribbon.
