How does everyone put there bc flowers cascading down the sides of their cakes w/o them falling off? I'm sure it's a simple solution, I just haven't figured it out.
I use butter-cream as a "glue" to hold each rose, and, since they are a heavy flower, pipe leaves around them, which help them stay in place, as well as "finish" the look.
Hope this helps.
Oh, and I should add, the longer BC or RI flowers dry, the lighter they become (the moisture makes them heavy), so drier flowers help when you want to do gravity-defying decorating.
me too on the buttercream glue (oooooh! I made a rhyme!)
When you start assembling the roses on the side of the cake, start at the bottom. As you place the flowers, you then have a base for them to sit on. Each rose becomes a support for the one above it.
And petit-four is right about the drying time. Air dry the roses (do not freeze) and you'll have no problems.
Thanks so much for the tips! Sorry it took so long to get back to everyone!
