I am making a wedding cake for a friend this weekend. She wants real roses put on it which she is getting from the florist for me to put on the cake. I have never used real flowers on a cake before.

Any tips on how to do it and what not to do. The cake is a WASC with Buttercream (no fondant) and is a 14/10/6 with the 10" being a dummy. She wants roses on the top and then kind of cascading down on an angle.

I purchase fresh flower cake spikes ( you can get them anywhere that you buy cake decorating supplies) and just stick it into the cake. Put a few drops of water into it and then put the flower in. It's really simple!

ETA: I don't usually add the flowers to the cake until we are at the venue so that they look as fresh as possible.

Good luck!

Thanks. I told her she needed to supply the cake spikes as well and I am putting them on the cake at the venue when I deliver so they will only have to be in the cake a couple hours there before the cake is served.
