The cake description is not accurate at all. It states there are black roses on the top and it clearly looks like a ribbon. But that's not what I am concerned about. I cannot get an up close pic of the sides. It all needs to be edible. It looks like black cherry blossom-style (even though it states roses in the description - those are not roses) flowers on a wire/string with beads. Is this what you see? If this is the case, any ideas on making it (the wire/strings portion) edible? I'm thinking making the cherry blossom style flowers and just pressing the edible super pearl beads into cluster patterns in to the fondant.

Anyone?

Thanks!

to me it looks like basic plunger flowers (blossoms) with dragees and piping.

I agree with myslady, I blew it up a bit and those are not roses, despite what they may say. Those are the basic small plunger flowers that you can easily buy a set of from Wilton.

I've had this cake saved for quite some time. I love it! I don't see wires. Just plunger flowers and dots applied somehow.
