HI, I tried searching here for the answer, and I had no luck finding it. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if I can just stick the stem of roses in a cake? I am decorating on only the side of the cake with it.

No. You do not want to stick the stems of any type of flower directly in a cake. I use flower spikes from Michael's to put my flowers in and then place on the cake. I don't know about you but I would not like to be the one who had the slice of cake with slivers of flower stems in it. Yuck!

You can also insert the stems into straws and cut them to size. I've done this with gumpaste flowers and it worked well, so it should work with fresh as well.

Wrap the stem in plastic first and then insert the wrapped stem into a straw. The important thing is that the stem doesn't leak onto the cake. You don't want insecticide getting on the cake.

You're welcome. I can't take credit for this advice though, someone had to share it with me icon_smile.gif
