I'm making a version of this cake and was wondering if any of you had done it (or something similar) or had suggestions.

I was thinking of attaching a skewer with royal icing to the back but that's not really attractive.

Do you think it would just stand up if I stuck it in on a point?

that might work but they are so darn fragile!

Maybe a florist wire ..I might use I skewer or a lollipop holder and put there when I am flooding it so is not as obvious.

Maybe make a thick topper and then add a toothpick to one of the points prior to it being dry.....once dry...insert into the cake with the toothpick??? Just a thought.........

thanks! All great ideas. I'll probably make several different ones and see what holds up. icon_smile.gif

Maybe you can just make the flower out of gumpaste and let it dry a little and stick a skinny skewer into the bottom of the flower. Or you can go with the color flow method and stick a skinny skewer into the design and let it dry. Do a test run on both and see which one works best. Good luck.
