I put aluminum foil on the cookie sheet first. I use primarily Schiff and Offray ribbon (for point of reference). If any prints have a tendency to bleed (i.e. red w/ white polka/swiss dots), then I bake @ 225 degrees for 25 minutes. If I don't have to worry about bleeding, I bake @ 250-275 degrees for 25 minutes. HTH

Some bake bows to help keep shape, say you sit on one .. baking just keeps it from getting mushed

This is about the same thing I do.

I have found some of the silky type ribbon with prints will bleed no matter how careful I am with the baking temperature and time.
