Does anyone out there have a tried & true way to attach buttercream roses to the side of the cake? I want to cascade a spray from the top of the cake over the side. I am going to try using toothpicks.....any other suggestions? Thanks

Let the BC roses air dry. Do not freeze them .... dry them. Air drying allows the moisture to escape, which makes the roses lighter.

When you start the cascade, start at the bottom of the cake. Then you can build on top of the roses, using the lower level of roses to help support the upper roses.

I attach all of mine with just a blop of BC. I use green BC so it blends in with the green BC leaves.

Here's a pic of one I've done. THe cascade isn't very heavy, but the roses stay one and I dont' use toothpicks.
