Ok, I'm sure this is somewhere but I only have a few minutes tonight to post this. I've used fresh flowers on wedding cakes before but now I'm a bit wiser and wondering if I need to insist on organically grown or what. Any thoughts will really help!
Seriously, anyone?? Please!
I have the following clause in my contract:
If fresh flowers are to be used, XXXXX is not responsible for placing fresh flowers on the cake. You acknowledge that fresh flowers are not a food product, and may contain pesticides, insects, dirt, or other contaminants.
I basically leave it up to the florist to take care of the flowers. If I do need to take care of the flowers, I place a circle of wax paper under the flowers just large enough to ensure that the flowers aren't touching the cake but also so that the wax paper can't be seen.
That sounds like a good idea. Thank you so much for posting!
No prob! I know it can be frustrating when nobody answers you. Glad it was helpful!
