I'm making my first wedding cake in March. The bride wants a flower/rose bouquet added as the topper. She wants fresh flowers, how do I go about this process? I've searched the internet for an instructional video but had no luck. I would greatly appreciate your help.
okay I am being lazy.. so i cut and pasted info from another of my posts..
I have worked in a florist shop and i do fresh flowers on cakes. so here is from my last post.
It is safe for roses to touch the cake. HOWEVER.. when you cut the roses MAKE SURE that you CUT THEM with their STEM UNDER WATER. Cut then wait a few seconds then pick or wire..which ever you prefer... for a rose to maintain its moisture its stem has to be cut under water..it only soaks up water in the first few seconds after being cut then seals itself.
I use mainly fresh cut flowers on my cakes.. so with roses.. i just have a bowl full of water sitting next to me, and just simply cut it and let it rest against the edge for a few seconds.
Also you will need ...wait.. let me go back and see if you get pm. this could be long here.
