Hi there!

So I am planning on putting store bought fabric flowers on a buttercream cake but am worried about the flowers getting a greasy look and possibly bleeding on the buttercream.  Any ideas on how to avoid this??  I was thinking about putting a wax paper barrier behind the flower, but not sure if this would look like good and don't know what to do about the fabric leaves...

When I put a ribbon around a cake I grease it first, that way it doesn't get blotchy.  Maybe try greasing the flowers first.  That way it will be uniform.  Just a suggestion.  I don't really know if that will work for you. :-)
