Hi I have a winter wedding coming up and they want poinsettias on thier cake. I know they are poisonous, so artificial is the route I should take and I found some beautiful ones to use, but I was wondering are there any special techniques to put them on? Do you floral wire them? There are ones that the bride liked that had some light glitter to them, would that be safe? (if the glitter part didn't go inside the cake?) I know... so many questions, but I have never done artificial flowers on a cake before and I don't want to totally screw it up!!! I do welcome any and all suggestions- Thanks for the help!
You can certainly pipe b/c poinsettias:

Thank you so much JanH - your links were wonderful I had heard about the wire thing- but thank you for posting that link as well- I have used straws in the past, when doing "corsage" type things with real flowers (boy am I technical or what???) for anchoring and that works awesome! Thanks again!!! Happy Holidays to you!
You're most welcome sillychef.
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
