flowers on a cake what do you put under them so they don't touch the cake? Also, are they loose or is a bouquet made?
depends on the type of flower and how they've been handled. If they're organic roses I lay them right on the icing, if they have to stick "into" the cake I burn the end of a drinking straw with a lighter and push it together until it cools making a small flower pick, stick the stem in the straw and stick the straw into the cake.
If they're poisonous flowers I point my customer to a website that sells reasonably (most times cheaper than real florals) priced gumpaste flowers so there are NO isssues!
Thanks for the tip about the straws KHalstead! I like the idea of burning them rather than filling them with frosting to seal them off, sounds like less work and more fun
thanks so much. Really like that tip.
