I know that hydrangeas are poisonous and I know that you wouldn't want to stick them in a cake but is there any safe way to use fresh hydrangeas on a cake and if so how quickly are they going to wilt?

you can put a paper barrier between the flowers and the cake, or have the florist arrange them in a plastic holder for the top of the cake.
A professional florist knows how to treat hydrangeas to keep them from wilting.
