I go to my local florist and he hooks me up with a light weight plastic cake topper and I just arrange the fresh flowers in that (it has the floral styrofoam already in it.) Hope this helps

I often cut the flower stems short and insert in a straw and then stick in the cake. For a small cake like you're doing, you would probably only need three roses. Place them in a triangle shape. Good luck and hope this helps.

thanks ladies? I love the straw idea. I have another question. I'm making a four tier cake using 3in pan. 5in,7in,10in,13in. I bake 8 cakes total do I have to torte all cake cakes?

when i arange fresh flower on top of a cake i usually use a ball of fondant and place them in there.

as for torting if it's for a wedding cake i personally preferr to tort i think it looks a bit more elegant when it's cut to have the layers. party cakes are def not torted unless specified or multiple fillings. only exception for me on the wedding cake tort is if it's a carrot cake or italian creme; due to nuts i don't go there.

again these are my personal prefereces...hth

Since its 3in would you torte them 2 or three times.

when i bake them 3in high i usually tort each layer once. so for one layer i bake 2 8" cakes, level, and tort each once; that way i have 4 layers of cake and 3 of filling. hope this isn't confusing.

I don't use three inch pans but I would think if you did you would torte the one layer twice and once it's filled it would be about the same height as if you did 2 2" high layers. Isn't 2 3" high layers a very tall tier?

For arranging the flowers I normally use the floral foam covered in plastic wrap.

Hope that helps!
