Happy Saturday! I know someone here will know about this. I'll be using a small silk bouquet for the top of a 6" cake. Very simple but are the flowers simply laid on the top, they wouldn't be stuck in would they?

Man-- such simple things drive me crazy!

I just lay the flowers on top. I cut the stems (silk or real) close to the head of the flower then put a blop of icing on the flower to glue it in place. Sometimes I put a mound of icing on top and then insert the flowers in that ... the cakers version of a florist foam square! icon_biggrin.gif I never insert flowers into the actual cake.

Thank you so much for your fast reply. That makes perfect sense to me. No-- I would never think you would ever stick flowers in the cake.

depending on the look, i actually have stuck flowers in the cake. just make sure they are non toxic. if they are fake I wrap them in floral tape or wipe them off.. but indyebi is right too icon_smile.gif

If you feel you need to insert them, you can wrap the arrangement stems with florist tape and then insert a large straw into the cake. Put the stems in the straw. icon_smile.gif Always a way...chuckle... icon_wink.gif
