I want to make a flower topper like this:
How do you keep the stem from falling and ruining the cake?
Also, how do you attach the flowers to the stems?
I'm obviously a newbie So, any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Just an idea, you could make it on a wire and bend the bottom so it is straight. Now you have what looks like half of a Y, missing the top left side. Use a plastic dowel which is hollow or a straw and stick the branch into it instead of right into the cake to hold it upright.
do you think that'll hold the weight of the flowers though? Probably will work with smaller flowers? Thanks for your help!
Sure it should if you make them from thin gumpaste. For stability you could fill the tube in the cake with royal icing or candy melts and then stick the wire into that. Many people do that.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!! will definitely do that
