I prefer to air dry them first. Air drying removes most of the moisture from the icing, making it lighter and easy to handle; less weight diminishes the probability of the flower sliding off of the cake. Just leave them sit overnight. If you want to store them for a long period of time in the freezer, put your air dried flowers in a freezer safe container.

What Indydebi said. That's exactly what my sister did for my daughter's cake and it turned out fine.

Thank you so much for your help. Im just learning on my own and I figured it would be a good way to put a cake together when I have enough good flowers. I do use your recipe. Its so good.
