Stacking with fresh flowers in between tiers

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Maybe not so complicated question, but I don't know how to keep anything short- sorry!

Hoping I could get some help on something new for me! I have wedding cake in September where the bride wants fresh flowers separating the tiers of her cakes. We're doing a total of 6 round tiers (16-14-12-10-8-6). They'll be in sets of 2, so it's 16-14 then flowers, 12-10 then flowers, then the top 2 tiers. Though I've done plenty of 6 tier stacked cakes, I haven't stacked with this type of separating, so I was wondering what to use in between the tiers.....I'll obviously assemble on site with this and put the flowers on there, so am I okay with just styrofoam and using flower picks, and still doing a center dowel to sturdy it? Someone tell me if I'm way off here, please!

Thanks so much!!

I just do colums in between the cakes.. The flowers will hide them.

That cake is beautiful!!

I've never put fresh flowers on a cake. What do you use so that the flowers are not actually "in" the cake?

you can use some wax or parchment paper so the flowers lay on it..

So I take the flowers have no trouble staying fresh for several hours then if they're just placed on wax paper instead of in some type of moisture, like flower picks?

Flowers are not as fragile as you think. For those who know my story about how my icing held up in 90+ degree, high humidity, outside for 5+ hours, there were also lots of fresh roses on and around it .... and they held up fine. Looked great for the photos ....5 hours later.

Can you use styrofoam forms between the layers and insert the flowers into those? I am beginning cake maker and my niece wants this xake and I have only been doing cakes for a year. 700
This is the cake she wants but we will be doing different decor on the tiers but it will be square and this tall.
