My daughter has asked me to make her wedding cake! Help....this will be my 1st!! She wants 2 heart shaped cakes w/white icing and real roses on top....I am very nervous about this. I have never used real flowers on a cake and how would I get them in the cake....do I wrap them together and place them or are then each done seperately..do you wrap them in something or place them in straws?? jah usaribbon.gif

My florists always puts the the flowers in a little dish that sets on top of the cake. Other times I used florist tape and wrapped the stem with that. I have never had a problem. Good luck!!

In the floral department at places like Michaels, Hobby Lobby even Wal- Mart they carry flower spikes that are white that you place the stems in and push into the cake. Some flowers are poisonious, so it's better to be safe than sorry.
Congratulations on your first post, I don't know how you waited two years!
