i have a wedding cake to deliver in a couple of hours and need to complete the top which is roses. Can i pierce the stem directly into the cake or should i cover them with something first if so what? I bought a large posy pick but it doesnt fit the 6 stems inside. Please someone advise me asap!!!

Thank you so much!! X

Cut drink straws to length and then push those into the cake. Put one (or two if they will fit) rose stems into each straw.

a ball of styrofoam or fondant could be placed on top of the cake, the roses inserted into there.
if you do the straw method, i would still want to wrap the stems with something - florists tape, clingfilm.
