Hi all! I am new to cake decorating, and I just do it as a hobby, so please, bear with me icon_wink.gif

I usually cover and decorate my cakes with fondant. However, this time I have to make a three tier cake covered and decorated in icing. I am not good at piping flowers, so I was thinking about fresh flowers.

How do I put fresh flowers on a cake (on top)? Also, what flowers can I use and what flowers can I not?

Thank you so much in advance for your help!!!!!!

Just make sure they are organic I believe, and that they are not poisonus! I know alot of people cut a straw the length of the stem and melt the end together. Then stick that in the cake and stick the flower in the straw. Hope that kind of helps!
