When using REAL flowers on a cake what precautions should you take???
If they are going to touch the cake, they should be pesticide free.
otherwise, just don't use the poisonous ones, like hydrangeas.
you can put a bit of waxed paper under flowers that need to lay on the cake.
Thanks, I was thinking more along the lines of a cake board - which would be seen whereas waxed paper would be barely noticeable.
I put plastic wrap for my barrier, then you can tuck it under so it won't show easily. Don't poke bare stems into a cake, EVER!!
