What is the trick to putting fresh roses on a basket cake... client wants fresh roses on a cake that looks like a basket... any tips would be great... thanks therese
angelaM thanks for the fast reply.. but I would need 40-50 spikes for this cake... any other suggestions.... would you insert them into the cake????
flowers are chemical free from the floral shop...
Wow that's a lot of flowers!
In that case I'm sorry, I'll have to sit back and hope somebody more experienced can help you. I'm interested to hear their ideas though!
Maybe just used the tops...
You could buy a 1/2 ball (dome) of floral foam,(you'd have to cover it in something food safe, like saran or wax paper or something), and then glue it to a cardboard cake round so that nothing hazardous touches the cake. Cut the roses about an 1/2 inch below the flower's head. Take floral wire, push it through what's left of the stem and wrap it over itself. Be careful not to crush the stem. (needle nose pliers help!) Then shorten the wire and push the flowers into the foam.
Gently set the dome on top of the cake like a topper. That's what I did for this one.
That's beautiful jhay! BTW I'm in CF too, what part are you in?
You could use straws instead of spikes..much cheaper...
thanks for all your help... therese
