I have a customer that wants fresh flowers on here cake. She wants me to insert a vase right in the middle of the cake to hold a bouquet of roses. Has anyone ever done this?

Are you saying on top of the cake or carving a hole in the center of the cake to insert the vase into? If it's the latter I don't know why it couldn't be done as long as the cake is large enough to have sufficient cake left around the edge after carving. Just be sure to charge for the entire cake including what your carve away.

Is a thin vase...I will have to cut out the middle part..just to fit it in.

Ive never done that but I guess there is no reason it CANT be done. Just be careful about the amount of water that goes in the vase. You dont want it spilling on the cake. Uck. You can also set the vase on top of the cake. You just need to add dowels and a cake plate to support it, exactly as if you were assembling a wedding cake. Post photos when you are done! It sounds interesting. icon_smile.gif

You can purchase flower picks, which are like tiny little plastic vases made for this sort of thing.. I think they're made by wilton...

Glass or plastic?
I wouldnt stick a glass item into my cakes, if its a plastic one and not too big I would propbaly do it, but imagine if the vase breaks inside the cake icon_confused.gif

A flower pick is a great idea

I've seen a separated three tiered cake with a vase in the bottom and sleves in the upper tiers with calla lillies, with huge stems, through the entire cake. Not sure where I found it but i copied the photo and saved it. If you want it, PM me and I'll send it to you. Here are links to couple of photos along the same line. Is this waht your client is thinking of?
