I'm a former florist and cake maker icon_smile.gif Stephanotis are a pretty "fleshy" little flower so if you place them on the cake a few hours before, they really should be fine. I think the pics will be to big for them. Since they have a tiny little stem, I would attach them to wire and then completely cover the wire in floral tape including the wire end. No bare wires into cakes. Then insert into a slim drinking straw and insert that, into the cake. Or you can insert straw, then flower into straw. If you want to put a little water source on each, you can take a little puff (tiny) of cotton that has been moistened and place on the bottom of stem, add wire, then tape down. But, I really don't think you will have to add a water source as long as you don't place them to long ahead. Buy a blossom and let it sit out on the table for a few hours, it should be fine.
