I am making a cake for a reception and they would like to preserve one of the sugar flowers to put in a shadow box as a keepsake. Can you do that? It seems like you could just give it a coat of clear acrylic? Any thoughts or suggestions? Anyone done this?

Thanks!

You don't even need to do that but you certainly can. My daughter has a gumpaste flower from her wedding almost 3 years ago, untreated, and it's fine. My mother has them in nooks and crannies all over the place and a friend had a collection on a shelf in her office. They do get dusty but in a shadow box they won't.

Just keep it away from sunlight (fades), humidity and dust and it should be fine. I think a shadowbox would be lovely and work great.
