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. icon_redface.gif

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. icon_smile.gif

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. icon_rolleyes.gif

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.
