Good morning,

I am making a retirement cake in March. It is a double layer 12 x 18 sheet cake and it will be covered by IMBC. I would like to put a couple sprays of gum paste roses on it but I know that the IMBC will cause them to soften. Is there something that I can put underneath the rose sprays to keep them from touching the IMBC.

Maybe wax paper?

I've used rice paper under flowers on BC. It's food safe so there no problem if it's eaten.

If the flowers are properly dry, I'm having trouble believing there will be a problem. Properly dried means make them (or buy them) now.

This is correct, for sure. If the flowers are completely dry, there should be no problem. But, if not, they will melt.

I am planning on making them this week, so they will have lots of time to dry. What I want to do is to give her the rose sprays as a gift. So, I don't want them to touch the icing.

I do have rice paper at home. I could try that.
