They sure are pretty...but I don't imagine that they're meant to be placed on food. I wonder how they're preserved? I don't see anything that says "not intended for consumption", but I don't see "non toxic/food safe" either. I guess you'd need to contact the company directly to be sure. The other thing is (and this may not be the case for this product) the dried flower section of any craft store has this smell that I would really not want transferred to a cake.
