I am learning (self taught) to make sugar flowers. Currently I am making hybrid tea roses, variety 'Peace,' and pansies. Trying different techniques; painting with color dust/alcohol mixture and dry on gumpaste (for a velvety effect)).
Question - can I put flowers on a cake that will be picked up on Friday, refrigerated, and not be presented until Sunday. I use toothpicks to place the flowers individually on the cake so wire never touches the cake.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
I've refrigerated cakes with with gumpaste flowers on buttercream for up to 24 hours and the flowers were fine so I think you'll be ok. Does the cake really need to be refrigerated, though? I only refrigerate when the filling is perishable, or if I've used a meringue BC.
