I am making plans for my 1st wedding cake with fresh flowers & it occurred to me that the spikes for the flowers are not exactly tiny. For those of you who have experience: Will they cut down on the number of servings? Thanks!

No, but I use Earlene's chart (it's bigger than Wilton's). Don't stick too many too close together or you will tear your cake apart. You can make your own my melting together the ends of a straw or filling it with candy melts. Then, you can use small straws for small stems and save the bigger ones for when they are needed.

what kind of flowers? If they are small you can also cut the hole in the rubber top and insert more than one.

they are roses. the florist is going to arrange them in the vials, but there will be a circle of them around the topper...should I use oasis foam on top?
