I know there have been several posts about Fresh Flowers on cake. However, I didn't really find an answer to what I need to do. First general questions: How do you put fresh flowers on a cake while ensuring food safety? Do you meet up with the bride's (or client's) florist? Do you put them on the cake or allow the florist to do it while you stand there? Do you have anything in your contract that says you are not responsible for the food safety of the flowers?
My specific question: I was just booked to do a cake similar to this-http://wedding.allwomenstalk.com/rustic-wedding-cakes-to-complement-your-theme/ (the first cake). The bride and groom want the flowers/succulents to be similar to the picture. She's given me the name of her florist. How would I go about putting the flowers on the cake? The wedding is Jan. 1 so I do have some time to figure it out. But it will be my first time with fresh flowers. I really wish everyone could afford gum paste flowers; those I know what to do with!
Thanks for any help.
