Hold on - does she want you to go and buy the flowers? And then put them on the cake?

I would definitely tell her to order the flowers from her florist. And then you can place the flowers on the cake. Some people include that in the price of the cake and others charge for it. So that's up to you.

But really, you do not want to go to the trouble and hassle of buying flowers. (At least, I wouldn't).

I always have the bride order the flowers. I will talk with the florist and let them know what will be needed as far as amounts and sizes (some flowers can get *so* big and you don't want to be stuck with 8 inch blooms for your cake) and then the bride will order them and have them delivered to the venue and I will put them on.

Now that makes sense!

do make sure the flowers are safe to be used on food - non toxix, non- pesticide - apparently not every florist is aware of this.

I put a sheet of acetate on the top of the cake if there will be fresh flowers... I hate using fresh flowers for the pesticide reason alone.
