A lot of people will say you should not put fresh flowers on a cake, but I do it. If you want to stick them in the cake, Wilton makes little flower holders that work nicely. If you are laying them on the cake, I lay down a piece of wax paper or parchment paper and place the flowers on there.

There is a big discussion on this issue in one of sections, but I can't remember which one. You might want to try a search on fresh flowers.

I hope that helps! icon_biggrin.gif

I make sure the ends of dry and clean (I bring snippers with me and cut the ends off so they are alittle fresher) and just stick them in the cake. I have yet to see any evidence of anyone getting sick from a rose being put into a cake. (People put roses in their salads!) The only flower that I know of that you should NOT put on a cake, in a cake or even near a cake is a cala lilly and poinsettas.
