I have read a lot of the past forums regarding fresh flowers on a cake. I kind of mixed views though as to what is okay. From what I'm understanding most people will wrap the stems in saran wrap to insert into the cake. Right? Is it okay to set leaves directly on the cake if they are wiped off prior to doing. It doesn't seem okay to me to put any part of the flower or leaf on the cake. Does anyone use the flower pics that you insert and put water into?? Just curious how those work. I am new to the wedding cake business so I am just trying to learn before I have a situation arise.
Here's a CC article that might help:
Also, I'd suggest using the flower pics, as saran wrap might tear with the pressure of the stems, or be difficult to retrieve.
I've also arranged flowers, and then used the two-plate separators for 3 layers of flowers, which stayed quite fresh in oasis.
The mother of the bride told me they lasted a week!
Hope this helps.
Thanks Petit-four for your reponse. I appreciate it.
