Hi ladies,

I've been to asked to do my first wedding cake, she wants cigarolles going around all three cakes then real Gerbers on top. (Florist is providing these).

1. How to I put/place on the Gerbers, the cake will have buttercream ontop. Do i have to make sure the flower stems are covered in anything?

2. I've also never worked with cigarolles before how do I put them on?

Flowers. I require that florists arrange the topper in a holder, OR, make a hand tied bouquet, with all the stems completely wrapped in floral tape, and then I plunge that into the cake top. You've only got one attempt with the second method, though, s get it right the first time.

As for the cigarellos, just slap them on while the bc is soft.

Thank-you, for the advice, I'm going to be speaking the wedding planner, so I'll tell her to tell the florist that I need all flowers for cake wrapped in tape ready for the cakes.
