I speak to the florists at weddings all the time when they give me my flowers. They all seem to agree that it is pretty paranoid to worry about the flowers stems. You'd have to eat a phenomenal amount of the flower stem residue for it to have an effect.




Personally, I would make sure the flowers do not come in direct contact with the cake. Just to be on the safe side. There is always a chance that that .001% of the population is gonna think the cake is safe to eat and end up going n to anaphylactic shock. Yes I know... not highly probable but why Take The chance.

That raise the questions, in the event of something like This happening. Who is responsible if care is not taken to place the flower so that it's not in direct contact with The cake? The florist or The cake decorator?

As a general rule of thumb, we carry in our kit to the reception site floral tape and wires, cutters and such...just in case there are fresh flowers there to be placed that we dont know about. We wrap the stems if they are going into the cake to take some precaution. If the Bride is insistant upon having flowers we know could cause a problem, we have the florist do it, because the florist should know 100% which flowers should be able to come in contact with a food product or not. Good Question, and knock on wood nothing ever happens!
