AHello everyone I have a request for this cake and don't really know how to attach the flowers so they wont fall off, any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks! ![IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3144576/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
AI would say either royal icing or melted white chocolate. Either one should do it
AOk but what do I insert in the flower? Like I hear that some people use floral wire but its not food safe...
You can use a plastic straw to go around the floral wire -- you're right, the floral wire by itself is not considered food safe.
I have used regular old drinking straws or small "coffee-stirrer"-type straws. This was one of the first cakes I made for a friend's bridal shower (please ignore that you can see the white cake circle underneath it). Most of the flowers are just stuck on with buttercream (especially the little ones, as they were very light) but the leaves were on wires. I just pushed a straw in the cake, cut so it was a little below flush with the icing surface, and when everything was on you couldn't see the straws at all.
I think it totally depends on the finished weight of your flowers....if they are light and/or aren't built on a wire, the royal icing or candy melts should work. Hopefully that is helpful!
AThank you very much kelly that was very helpful, I greatly appreciate your advice and ill give it a try we will see how ot turns out, once again thank you!!!!
You're welcome and good luck!
