I am making a anniversary cake for this weekend and they wanted teal flowers on the cake. I am doing an edible image of their wedding pictures which is black and white. What kind of flowers would any of you do?? I am not sure if I would like to do teal roses? But I was thinking maybe doing Easter Lilies white with teal centers or maybe daisies with teal centers?? Just a little teal not alot, something suttle I think?? Please help!!!!

What was their wedding flower? Maybe you could copy that. If they are having photos of the wedding on the cake, they probably would like replica flowers. Good luck.

I agree with you 100% -- all teal flowers don't work very well on a cake, especially in buttercream.

It was 1997...I was at a wedding...a massive cascade of teal roses and leaves on a 3 tier wedding cake, the bridesmaids in shiny satin teal hoop-skirts. It got warm, the butter-cream started to melt...it wasn't pretty.

Anyway, back to 2008! Perhaps, exactly as you mention, tiny violet-like teal accent flowers, or teal centers. Also, if they don't like a lot of flowers, a subtle accent of tiny teal swiss dots would work well too.

As you know, Wilton makes a teal coloring.

Hope this helps. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the replies, not that I am thinking maybe I could do some apple blossoms with the teal the the swiss dots. The wheels are turning.

Thanks all !!!
