I recieved an order for a bridal shower, they want gerbra daisies on top of the cake, however they want fake flowers. I do not know how to put them in the cake? any ideas or pointers?
I'd cut them off as close as you can to the blossom w/o them falling apart then attach them with a glob of either stiff buttercream, royal icing or chocolate/candymelt. Unless they want them sprouting out of the cake then use the same technique as when attaching wires-flower picks or coffee stir straws or something. Hope this helps a little
you can get flower picks also. Same concept as using a straw. Stick it in the cake then stick the stem in the straw/pick. Depending on the material of the flower, buttercream or other icings may bleed through the petals.
I have used silk flowers, sometimes you can't get the color you want or maybe the flowers are not in season....but for whatever reason...silk works great....I really try and get a good quality silk flower, looking as true as possible....cover the stems if you need to push them into the cake, using a straw.
