I am putting real roses on an all buttercream wedding cake this Sat. Is it okay to just wrap them (rose stem, small sprig of baby's breath) in floral tape and insert directly into cake, OR, do I need to push floral spikes into the cake first and put the flowers in? I would prefer to just wrap them in floral tape if that would be okay.

Thanks for your help

I would of put them into a posey pick or floral spikes as sometimes called, To be on the safe side.

There is never enough information on how to add fresh flowers to cakes. I would love to see a tutorial on this topic. I have 3 potential orders for wedding cakes with fresh flowers and I am just afriad to accept because I don't know how to do this properly. Especially when you are doing a flower cascade down several tiers. Thanks for starting the topic!! HELP!!
