If I had to guess, I would say that those are royal icing roses. They are quite small, so it is possible that buttercream would stay if placed carefully but if I were making this cake, I would definitely make the roses out of royal.

RI would be my preferred method...but I have let BC roses dry overnight, and they would be okay for placing on the side of a cake...especially when I know there are going to be kids looking to eat the flowers off the cake!

They turn out very dry on the outside, and still soft on the inside.

And obviously, the larger they are, the longer they need to sit out to dry.

When you make them, make sure you place them on parchment paper to dry. Wax paper will leave them soft on the bottom, and impossible to place without gettting all smooshed.

Make extras, just in case!

Have fun!
