Fresh Daisies pushed into frosting on top of cake?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me if it is o'k to put the stem of a flower directing into the frosting on a cake? This cake is being served in August at an outdoor reception so I'm also concerned about the flowers wilting. Is there some kind of plastic water holders that I will need to use for each flower to prevent this? The cake is four layers stack construction with daisies on the top edges of all the layers. Please help!

I know Wilton sells little water spikes for this purpose. You put the spikes in and then fill them with a water dropper. I think they sell them at Michaels. If not...I know you could order them online. Good luck!

I would not put the flowers directly into they cake. They make something called a flower spike that you put into the cake and can add a little water and you put the flower in them. Wilton carries them. I would not want my guests to get sick from the flowers. Even though a daisy is a safe flower, they still may carry bacteria from the soils and be containmenaited with pesticides.
