any tips on using fresh flowers on a wedding cake? I have done multiple searches and really not finding much info on this topic? my friend wants fresh flowers but not sure what type yet.
THANKS SO MUCH!
Yr very welcome
so I found out she is wanting stargazer lilies. Everything I have read states that they are deadly for cats but seems unsure about humans....I dont think I am comfortable with the idea of a potentially toxic flower being placed on my yummy cakes!
I don't blame you. I would inform her of the info that you have on this flower, it being harmful and that you don't think its a good idea.
Wilton has whats called "flower spikes", I think thats the name and you stick the flowers stems inside of them and then you are able to put them on yr cake BUT, I'm not even sure I would use that still, bc of the the potential hazard of the flower in general.
I don't know if you make gumpaste flowers or not but, maybe you can mention that to her and see if she likes the idea. I mean, it's more work for you but, its much safer for everyone at the wedding There are videos on youtube and Edna of Design Me A Cake has a dvd that shows how to make Stargazer Lillies. she is awesome at making Sugar Flowers.
Also, you can order gumpaste flowers if you don't want to or have time to make them.
