How do you attach a cluster of sugar flowers to completely cover the top of the cake? I heard it isn't food safe to stick the wires directly into the cake. Thinking about using a styrofoam ball cut in half so you have the roundness on top for height and arranging the flowers into the styrofoam then setting it on the cake. Any help would really be appreciated. Doing cake for a bridal shower. Thanks!
