I have a client who wants real roses in a gap about 2" between the tiers of a wedding cake. I'm really not sure how to do that and keep the flowers fresh. Please give advice and how-to.

Rose will hold up for a LONG time out of water. I set my cakes up about an hour before the reception and by the time we cut the cake, the roses are still looking good. They are not as fragile as someone has made you think they are.

I somewhat disagree w/Indyicon_smile.gif
It depends on the humidity ...... if it is going to be HOT & humid, I'd wrap a wet piece of cotton around each stem.

Sorry, don't know about g daisies.
