Hello all! I am making a friend's b-day cake and need help on how to attach a gumpaste flower to the side of a three tiered cake. I am fairly new to cake decorating and newer still to making gumpaste flowers. The only practice I've had with attaching them to cakes was when I used a dab of buttercream to hold a gumpaste flower on some mini cakes. Any tips on how to keep them on? Wire might work, but I don't want to get lead in the cake... any advice??
