I need to place fresh calla lillies in three places on the edges of the cake tiers. What is the best way to place the calla's on the cake. What do you use to attach the fresh flowers. It is a small 2 tier cake so there is not alot or room. The flowers will be grouped and put in a spot on the edge of the cake tiers. How do I hold them i place? I've worked with gumpaste flowers but this has to be different.

You may know this already, but be careful with Calla lilies. They are poisonous especially the stems. You may want to do a little research online.

You're kidding. I thought I have seen them on cakes. On the cakes I've done I've always made the callas. Bridge wants fresh. What do I do????
Should I take the chance?

Here is a link that discusses how toxic they are. I would discuss with bride, but I wouldn't do it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I had no idea. I was just on the very same website as you and read the info. I'm with you. No fresh calla lilies on this cake.

Thank you again.
