I am doing a wedding cake next month. The bride wants actual rose buds on the top of each layer.
Do I need to add wax paper under the roses or just stick them on?

I've never worked with flowers on a cake before but...I know it's a popular thing anymore!!

Any help...well...helps icon_wink.gif

Thanks!!!!!

Are you referring to real flowers?

Im going to assume she does want "real" rose buds. I wouldnt think she would want to use wax paper under fondant/gum paste flowers.

*NEVER!* stick any flowers into a cake. There are flower pix available OR use a drink straw.

Most flowers have been treated w/pesticides; if not then they will be full of bugsicon_sad.gif...... so yes, you would want to put some wax paper under them.
