  4. Hi Peggy! I'm a fan of your work, I just want to ask how you stick your ribbon? I struggle placing ribbon on my cakeboard and it looks so loose and horrible.

    Many thanks

    1. Angie, thanks for your question. I have this tutorial posted on www.cakesdecor.com and I fixed that part (how I stick on my ribbon) - but I forgot to fix it here! I use a hot glue gun. I stream a very thin line down the middle of the ribbon and it works like a charm. Holds it in place and if you need to take it off, it comes off with just a tug (and doesn't hurt the cake drum). Good luck! ~ Peggy

  5. Hi Peggy! Thanks for sharing, I just want to know that since this paper is not food safe, are you putting the cake directly on the paper or is the cake on a board and then placed on the paper?

    Thanks

    1. Contact paper can go on shelves in your kitchen. I put my drinking glasses lip down on my shelves and then I drink from them. They are in straight contact with this paper for hours and then I put my lips on them. I'm not remotely concerned about the danger level here, but if you are, I wouldn't use it. Also, I would never put a cake straight on a cake drum without a cake board underneath it. To be honest, I didn't even realize you could do that! All my cakes sit on their own cake board. Bottom line, if you are concerned about the safety of this technique, just skip it. ~ Peggy

  6. Wonderful tutorial. Always wondered how people did this. Quick question, any tips on how to get it as smooth using a round (since there's no neat way of bringing the paper to the back)?

    1. for a round one you would cut the bits that go over the back into sections, like as if you were drawing the sun, then just fold and glue each small piece as you go, they will overlap underneath and it will give you a really clean edge
