I'm doing a cake that will have a few # of real calla lilies laying on top of the tiers. What the following cake sizes be fine? 7,9,12,15?
1. The number of servings needed determines the size of the cake. And then you choose the sizes of the tiers. For the sake of symmetry I'd do 6/9/12/15 which equals 185 wedding servings.
2. Callas are poisonous.
The cake will be covered in fondant, and the florist is going to lay them on top of the tiers. Do you think the inches between each tier is enought to lay the mini calla lilies on? I'm not worries about serving, I'm also doing sheet cake.
and the florist is going to lay them on top of the tiers.
I would not suggest using fresh calla lilies on your cake, as Leahs said they are poisonous!!!
This is the symptoms that the guest might suffer from if they ingest the poison
* Burning in mouth and throat
* Swelling of mouth and tongue
* Redness, swelling, pain, and burning of the eyes
* Nausea or vomiting
I would definitly not want my name assosiated with a cake might might make people ill!
It does not matter if she lays them gently on top. They are poisonous and the fondant will absorb them. I would also question that florist as they should know what kind of flowers are food safe.
