My step-daughter sweet 16 is coming up & she wants me to do the cake for her..she is doing Beauty & the beast theme! I saw this cake & loved it!
she wants her cake to be yellow, white w/ red roses!
My questions are:
* can i use fresh roses on a cake?
*how would i attach the ribbon? after its on the plate or before?
* how many tiers should i make....it should feed about 100-120

any suggestions anyone??

thanks!
LL

Yes, just make sure they are organic and rinse them well.

I would do it before (even if you're putting it on a plate, it still needs to be on a cake board). You can use a bit of icing to "glue" the overlapping ends together in the back or a single pearl-headed straightpin through the two ends into the cake. You'll have to remove the ribbon before cutting anyway, so no worries about anyone getting the pin in their slice!

8-10-12 will give you 120 1"x2"x4" servings.
