For larger flowers I am planning on attaching toothpicks to the flower backs and inserting into the cake, but what about smaller flowers?  What to attach with?  Attach when cake is chilled and frosting hard?  Room temperature?  Thanks in advance!

Just what I wanted to hear, and your cakes (esp. the pink one from the other day) are what have inspired me to try this out.  I was hoping you'd respond, thank you!  And I absolutely love the aqua/white cake.  Stunning.

Thanks! The pink one was painted fondant, and that took some gummy fondant globs to get those flowers to stick. You'd think the semi damp airbrush paint would have made them latch on, but nope.

Well it turned out absolutely gorgeous.  I just recently discovered the heaven that is SMBC and ordered some wafer paper, so I figured I'd ask how the two work together before I play with them.  Thank you again!

I love all of the picts of wafer paper flowers you all have done, i have the paper - now i need to try it. One question though if i put the wp flowers on buttercream will the flowers dissolve at any time? i have to make a cake and deliver it the day before the event. If i put the flowers on and it sits for a night is that ok? or should i have the customer place them on the cake when it's time? Thanks for all of your imput!
