I am making my first wedding cake and the customer wants fresh roses on the top of the cake and a couple on each of the tiers. I want to know if I can just wrap the stems in florist tape and insert them into the cake? If the flowers don't have water, how long will they last? Is there anything else I need to know? Thanks!
No, you should not do that, although many people do stick fresh flowers and wires and other gross things into cake. Use Wilton's posey picks for inserting flowers into cake.
Thanks Cakepro... I will have a look for the posey picks.
