AOoh I'd like to know this too!! :)
I would try piping large circles of royal icing (thick royal icing) starting with the roses on the bottom. Or, alternatively, try using a melted white chocolate. Let it harden a bit and then attach each rose, starting at the bottom. What a pretty cake!!!!
Thanks, Narasmom. Yes i may try your way. Just wonder if any one done it other way?
Does any one have have any other ideas please? Thank you.
Without using a stick to the back of the rose that would go into the cake, I agree with Narasmom, I use melted chocolate and color it the color of my roses or fondant. Take your time, allowing each one to dry before applying adding the next one.
Thank you every one i appreciate your help, will try, hope i can do it. Thanks again !
You always build these cascade from the bottom up. Make sure the roses on the bottom are firmly stuck on, since they are providing support for the roses further up.
I have been having the exact same problem, I have a lady who has ordered her cake online and wants me to take off some brown roses and replace them with cream ones. The best advice I have come across that I am going to use is royal icing. It is supposed to stick extremely strong and hard. I am a little worried about having to take roses off and replace them though! :S . My roses may not fit in their place!
Thank you every one for your help, i am done with my cake i used chocolate to glue my roses to the cake . It worked great they were very heavy but i had no problem after i glued them. Here is the picture. Thanks again!
That cake is beautiful.
Wow, you have done a lovely job on your cake!
AWooooow that is soooo beautiful!!!!
AHello, I am new to cake central - excellent site! What I do, leave the wire (stem) from the rose about 2" to 3" inches.get a straw and cut it a bit longer than your stem. Insert stem into the straw and poke into the cake.
Hope this helps.
All the best!
Your cake Looks fantastic!!!!! Such beautiful roses. Did you use real lace?
Debcent, it is gorgeous!! You did a great job. Congratulations.
Thank you for your wonderful comments and help!
me too- i find coffee stirrers are about the perfect size- small enough not to displace too much cake, but large enough to be seen if they dont' pull out with the flower.
Such a beautiful cake and amazing roses! i love the two-tone colour on the roses. How did u achieve that effect if you don't mind me asking? i'm new to making roses and will be making a cake with rose decor very soon
AHave to tell you your and flowers are lovely. What size are the roses?
WOW! I LOVE THE PINK AND WHITE!
By the way I am also new here...I'm learning a lot :)
Sorry did not see questions earlier.My flowers were pretty big and heavy. I started from the bottom, used chocolate to attache flowers to the cake, and staked on on each other for support. Hope it will help some one.
I would use royal icing, it does become really hard and ensures a good fix.
Royal icing is OK also, but i like chocolate because its hardens faster.
AYour cake is exactly what I want for my own wedding . I am going to learn to make the roses ! Thanks for sharing .
