AI have a wedding cake coming up and the bride wants the top tier to have edible roses in shades of purple and leaves and other flowers in contrasting colors to compliment the roses and create a nice focal point.

What flowers would you recommend pairing with the roses? The bride mentioned magenta and white colored flowers but I'm not sure exactly which type of flower to go with. Any ideas?

Any newer links to sugar paste flower tutorials available. I checked a few on the pinned page here but the links are dead. Does someone go back eventually and check these things?

Thanks for the help!

Why not try other flowers in the color of the year, it's a perfect contrast to purple.

I agree with onceuoponacake too, the calla lilies would be so perfect with the roses.
