What is the best way to transport large gumpaste roses to a wedding venue? I do not want to attach the roses to the cake until I am at the venue but I am afraid they will break in transit.

I usually bend the stems and then put the flowers on a bed of crumpled paper towels, inside a cardboard tray. I've also transported them with the wires stuck into styrofoam. Both methods work fine for me.

You should always make a couple of spare flowers to take along. I've never had any break, but I always take extras just in case.

Great, thank you for the quick reply.

I line plastic shoe boxes with press-n-seal with the edges of the sticky side down to adhere and the rest of the sticky side up. I then create rings made out of press-n-seal and place these in the bottom of plastic boxes. I create the size of the ring dependent on the size of the rose. The roses do not slip at all and stay put yet remove very easily from the boxes.

I store my roses in plastic storage boxes with shredded plastic "easter grass".
