I'm making a fondant covered 2 tiered cake and I've made many roses, calla lillies, daisys, and sun flowers. My roses and calla Lillie's are on a wire but my daisys and sunflowers aren't. How do I get them all on the cake? Sorry if this is a dumb question but it's my first time using gum paste flowers!

Thanks!! icon_biggrin.gif

If there's no wire, I would use melted candy melts. For the wired flowers, make sure you put the wire into a small straw or coat it with melted chocolate before inserting it into the cake. Jennifer Dontz has an excellent DVD on flower arranging on cakes!

Also, start at the bottom of the cake so the flower below will support the weight of the next flower. Good luck!
