What does everyone use to keep your fresh flowers in water. I remember reading about this a long time ago but can't remember, I have 2 cakes coming up needing them. One has just a few gerber daisies on top of the cake, the other has lots of flowers between the separated tiers. Your expert advice is most appreciated.

If the design allows it I use pieces of oasis soaked in water. It's the brand for fresh flowers foam. It's best used on a small container so the water won't get to your cake. Some people wrap the wet pieces with asaran wrap but I just don't like that. Smither oasis has a range of floral foam you can use. You can check with your flower supplier to see if they sell them.
For single flowers I use the water picks from wilton. But if I can't use water (because of the design of the cake) I just sitk a little piece of a straw so the flower wont touch the cake.
