I am making ribbon roses this week for a wedding cake on Saturday. I've watched all the tutorials and youtube videos for making the roses, but...

How do I attach them to the cake??? It will have 3 roses at each of the 4 top corners of a square cake...

Thank you for your help!!!

You could just attach them with a little buttercream, or put a long toothpick in each one for more stability....

I would attach the roses using a toothpick.

If you do decide to use toothpicks to attach the roses, make sure the client knows they are there.

If they are to sit on top of the cake, just plop a little bc on the corner and stick 'em on. A few icing leaves will hide the plop. If you're hanging the roses off the side of the cake, then yeah, you're gonna have to skewer or wire those.

Thank you everyone! I was thinking toothpicks also... But they will be sitting on the top of the corner piece, so I guess some bc would hold them too.

Thanks again! I'm gonna use bc I think...
