Is there anyone who can tell me what hydrangia flowers look like? I have a request for white roses and blue hydrangia flowers on a wedding cake for 75-100 people. I think hydrangias are big ball shaped flowers, but am not sure. If they are, how can I make them and how would they look on a wedding cake???

I did a small wedding cake for about 60 people with real hydrangea flowers. It was two squares stacked and I used whole flowers and leaves and some petals strewn around the cake and table. It was really nice (no pic though icon_cry.gif ) There was no problem with anything because I didnt stick the flowers into the cake just set them on top.

Hi kats,
Are these for gumpaste hydrangeas? I saw the hydrangea cutters on the sugarcraft website today if you're looking for some. I used to be a floral designer and live hydrangeas were a seasonal spring/summer flower if I recall. Not sure if that has changed or not if so just ignore my floral info. icon_smile.gif

Yes, I was looking for info on icing hydrangias. I think I heard that the live ones were not safe to put on a cake. Thanks.

I do gumpaste Hydrangea flowers on my cakes all the time - take a look if you want. There are some close ups of them in my photos also.

kats,

Just wanted to let you know that hydrangeas are not poisonous. Though if eaten in large quantities your heart rate will skyrocket. icon_smile.gif If you just place them on your cake you should be fine.
