I have made some large single blooms and the petals are all wired, maybe this is a really silly question, but whats the best way to attach these to the cake please ?!?!? I want three blooms, one on each tier, and want to hide the stem so you just see the flower, is a posy pick the only way ? Thanks inn advance ! x
So far I have only put mine on the very top of the cake, and I've arranged my flowers using a "waste" glob of fondant (not meant for eating,) the same way I would use florist foam with real or silk flowers. If you want to stick them directly into the cake, the trick is to create a food-safe barrier between the wire/florists tape. You can dip them in melted chocolate (regular or white,) or wrap them in plastic wrap before you poke them in.
Here is the link to the sticky post in the cake decorating forum. FUll of ideas to solve this problem. HTH
Drinking straws so that the wires cant cut through your cake. You can also squirt a little bit of RI or melted chocolate so they dont move.
Thanks all, this is very helpful
I use bubble straws for big flowers and I also dip the wires in white chocolate just in case.
