Just yesterday I delivered a plain wedding cake that was to be decorated with real flowers. I have never put fresh flowers on a cake, or flower arranged, and was relying on the florist to show me and do a beautiful job. Anyway, she did a terrible job and I told her so (in the nicest way possible) and she stormed off leaving me with an ugly 80's cake and half dead flowers. I did the best I could (picture below). Other florist were there and said it was a sin to insert the flowers into the cake (which the previous florist did and I continued to do) - opinions on that?
Also I tried to get a height with the flowers on top of the cake, and the other florist said to use little plastic containers, like those chinese ones, but I just kind of built them on top of each other and layered the flowers, opinions on that?
Any tips and do/don't would be great. Thank you!
