I used Satin Ice with some tylose mixed in to make the ribbons. This helped keep them from stretching and they held up better. I used my trusty sewing gauge to help mark my ribbon lines and I used blue luster dust to the give the blue ribbon its sheen!
Also, I normally don't like handwriting on cakes. We have so many other methods of getting text on cakes (edible image, Cricut, etc) and the handwriting is just not my style. But I was very pleased with how the writing turned out. And believe it or not, the cake gods must have been smiling on me that day - I did all the writing in one take. Yep, no mistakes or do overs!!
Hop back over here on Friday and see what else we've been up to!
