Hi Everyone,

I am delivering a wedding cake today and the cake will have fresh green orchids, place through out the 4 tiers.

I know that can be put on the cake but...... Do I need to cover the stems from touching the cake? How long will a orchid bloom last with out water?
It's a cold, rainy day here in California, so I'm not worried about the heaticon_smile.gif.

I'm sure everyone is very busy today, it being Valentines Day icon_smile.gif!

I hope someone will be able to answer my questions.
I would greatly appreciate every ones information if possibleicon_smile.gif.


Thank you for your time,

Yes, yes, yes, yes!!!!!!!! Definitely. Never put any flower on a cake w/o wrapping the stems.
They will hold up for many hours.
Where in CA are you that it's rainy? icon_smile.gif

I use flower picks with water and a cover which prevents the water from coming out. This picks allow the flowers to have water specially for the orchids since they are very delicate.
