I am attempting to create a cake similar to this one but I am unsure as to how these roses are attached to the cake.  Would they be individually attached or would I need to "string" them together with wire and then attach it to the cake?  And if I have to "string" them together would it be too heavy?  I am planning on covering my cake with buttercream, as requested.  Any help would really be appreciated, I've been googling but to no avail.

AYou don't need to attach the flowers together. Just attach them individually, they are just mini roses probably made with Gumpaste the cake is just BC.

You might need to outline a pattern for your placement but that's only if you don't think you can apply then evenly freehand (does that make sense?)

AThere are also piped leaves on each side of the roses

gum paste is a good way--i would pipe the roses because it is easier for me--


i would pipe a fresh swag to lay the roses on--to snuck them into the icing so they stick--


and the piped leaves can camoflage any swag residue that might peak out--


i mean pipe a swag or pipe a bunch of rosettes to set the roses in--


swag is easier imo

To K8memphis:  Thank you for your suggestion, I never thought to make a bc swag to adhere the roses to the cake...makes a lot of sense.  I'm also assuming these roses are gp.  Appreciate the help!

AYour welcome! I meant that the leaves will help add support to those little roses. It's a cute design

AK8 is right about piping, it would probably be faster then making all those tiny roses by hand. But they are gp/fondant in the pic.
