Mum asked me to bake a cake for tomorrow, since we are having company. It is a simple bundt cake that will be frosted with chocolate icing.

Mom thought I should do some really simple pink flowers on top of the brown... I was just going to do apple blossoms or something? Do you have any other suggestions?

Anways..... I don't want to take the chance to ruin another cake by putting flowers on it and then it ending up aweful.

So, I was going to do the flowers on a practice sheet, freeze them for a few hours, and then randomly place them around the cake...

Will freezing them make them taste bad or melt?????

Thanks!!!

Are you making them with buttercream or what?

I didn't want to possible ruin the cake by piping flowers directly on..... if the ones i freeze turn out bad, I don't have to put them on and can leave the cake plain..................

No freezing them won't make them taste bad, but they will return to soft and wet/limp when thawed. This shouldn't be too much of a problem for what you're trying to do with flat flowers if you're placing them flat where they don't need to hold a shape.

However, for buttercream roses that need to hold their shape, you should air dry them in advance.
