Happy Saturday! I know someone here will know about this. I'll be using a small silk bouquet for the top of a 6" cake. Very simple but are the flowers simply laid on the top, they wouldn't be stuck in would they?
Man-- such simple things drive me crazy!
I just lay the flowers on top. I cut the stems (silk or real) close to the head of the flower then put a blop of icing on the flower to glue it in place. Sometimes I put a mound of icing on top and then insert the flowers in that ... the cakers version of a florist foam square! I never insert flowers into the actual cake.

Thank you so much for your fast reply. That makes perfect sense to me. No-- I would never think you would ever stick flowers in the cake.
depending on the look, i actually have stuck flowers in the cake. just make sure they are non toxic. if they are fake I wrap them in floral tape or wipe them off.. but indyebi is right too
If you feel you need to insert them, you can wrap the arrangement stems with florist tape and then insert a large straw into the cake. Put the stems in the straw. Always a way...chuckle...
