Iâve used fresh flowers on cakes a number of times, but this one has me puzzled. The bride has requested a small bouquet on the top with the other daisies cascading down the side. Mind you, these will not be the âorganicâ flowers (I believe that is what they call the edible flowers). Typically I use a separator plate for the flowers on top or if I have a small bouquet on the side, wrap the stems of the flowers in plastic wrap before using on the cake. Is there a better way??? Please help!

Thank you, Missy

There is a product out there that are flower picks that you can push into the top of the cake. You push them in and then can put the flowers into that.. The flowers then never really touch the cake. I found some of them at Hobby Lobby I believe..

So many florists just stick the flowers in the cake...but I agree, use picks if you don't think they will be safe!

I would also like to know how long fresh flowers will last on a cake before they start wilting. Does anyone know?

good flowers will last longer then the cake, beleive it or not! (I mean, if you place it like 2-3 hours before the reception) I have set up cakes in the morning of the wedding and the bride sent me cake cutting photos..the flowers still looked beautiful 5-6 hours later.

Oh great! I'll be setting up an hour before the reception, so they should be fine. Yay! Thanks!!

Thanks everyone! I talked to a florist and she suggested since I was using daisies, to put a toothpick into the trimmed off daisy and it worked beautifully. I wasn't totally happy with the cake itself due to the extreme heat and humidity, but the brides' mother loved it!

Here's the link to the photo.

This is an old thread but I'll give it a try. Is it ok for the bottoms of the daisies to touch the cake?
