AWould you put the flower pick in the cake with or without water? I would think without water. And when would you put the flowers on? I'm just debating this tonight for tomorrow's wedding cake. All the cakes I do have had sugar flowers. This one has real flowers... Now I'm trying to figure out what to do, lol.

Definitely, no water! If it leaked you'd have a problem. The flowers shouldn't go on too far in advance, at the most an hour or two before the people come.

 

If the flowers aren't fresh enough or the right flowers not to wilt for 6 hours....not your fault...the florist should have advised the bride.

AI use straws or spikes as more of a barrier between the cake and flowers. And yes, as stated above, put the arrangements in last min. Straws are more for when I use wires with Gumpaste flowers but that's another story.

AI also have a spot on my contract that states who's bringing the flowers, and get contact info for the florist. Most importantly make sure the flowers are safe to place on a cake, otherwise you'll need to make or purchase sugar flowers. Coszmucar (I think that's her site name here) sells lovely flowers from her site if you need to purchase.

AI just pulled the flowers out of the box and they're in a shallow dish! Sweet! The flowers totally won't touch the cake and I can just give the flowers to them to just place on top of the cake. *** happy dance *** :D

Totally confused here. You made the cake? Someone else is placing the flowers on top of the cake? A dish of flowers in water will be placed as is on top of the cake? Can you post a photo? Thank you! End of questions.

Sorry, it's not in a dish of water!! That would be scary... just a disaster waiting to happen. It was in a shallow plastic dish with the flowers in the green floral sponge. I'll post the picture to show you ;)
