I have been asked to do a pretty simple wedding cake for an outdoor wedding. The reception will be about 11:00. She want flowers around the base of the cake. Should I make them in Royal Icing or fondant? Would they melt if RI? Or would the fondant go limp? Its a buttercream iced cake.
I don't have much advice. The only thing I can think of is....if you put the cake in the fridge with the flowers on and then take it out before the wedding you will most likely have a problem with condensation on the cake and flowers and then the condensation causing the flowers to "wilt".
Definitely gumpaste flowers. And buy them as they will be quite dry and very hard.
I TOTALLY agree with leah.....go for the premade gumpaste.......there is nothing HARDER or sturdier on the planet! lol
Ok great! And I don't refrigerate my cakes so that won't be a problem. Now the problem is figuring out how to match the teal and peach..lol...Thanks everyone!
dusts, airbrush paint, heck you can purchase a lot of flowers pre-colored. www.avalon deco .com
I agree with Leah, buy the pre-made gumpaste flowers, they will definately hold up the best against the heat. I would buy all white flowers and then use luster/petal dusts to color them myself. That way you can guarantee a good color match. Good luck!
