I want to make a cake with fondant accents and I want to also include some basic 5 petal flowers that would be made of GP & Satin Ice mixed (OR all GP) whichever is better for this purpose, made so that they dry & just curl up at the petals for the 3-d effect sort of...

Per request, the cake will have a perishable filling and need to be refridgerated, but will the flowers wilt? flatten out? slide off the cake? The cake will be iced in BC and I can use GP or the mix of GP & SI, I just need to know if this can be done? Should I just change my whole design?

I also want to spray the flowers with the pearly spray...will that get funky when they take it out to serve it, like run or something?

the flowers won't melt off the cake but they will wilt. You have to keep fondant/gumpaste away from humidity and there is high humidity in a fridge. If at all possible, put on the flowers after you have removed the cake from the fridge for the last time.
