AHi everyone, I have a wedding cake I need to make for a friend, she wants a 3 tiered cake with silk flowers cascading down from it, this is my first time making this, so I was wondering if anyone could please suggest the best way I could achieve this effect? Thank you in advance!

Is this what you have in mind?  http://www.cakecentral.com/g/i/28124/a/29124/all-hand-made-red-gumpaste-roses-buttercream-iced-cake-w-real-ribbon-trim/

 

Once the cake is stacked and bordered, you pipe/spatula on a wide swath of icing to stick/lay the flowers in.  this way the flowers do not touch the cake that will be served as the server scrapes that away.

Yes just like that! Do you think the silk flowers will stay in place? I won't be assembling the cake on site it will be traveling. Beautiful cake btw!:)

Yes.  Leave a stem of maybe 1 or 2" on each flower to stick into the icing. 

Since my flower swag was gumpaste I did not pipe a b'cream swath but for fresh OR silk one should.  You don't want those flowers touching what is going to be eaten.
