I'm going to be making a cake similiar to the one that is attached here. I've read the many posts about using wire in cakes and would like an alternative, but am unsure how to achieve that with this cake. How do I attach the hydrangeas around the bottom of the tiers without using wire? I don't think they're stuck on with royal icing because they stick out too far. I tried contacting the person who made it, but got no response. Please help if you know how I can achieve this look.
Hi Anita, I can't see the photo, could you try to attach it again please?
I can't see the photo, but when I'm doing cakes with lots of flowers I use the straw trick.. Put a drinking straw into the cake where the flowers are to go and put the wire into the drinking straw..
I couldn't get the pic to work either, but for small or single flowers I insert them into a coffee stirrer straw. For larger bunches I either use a regular straw or a bubble tea.
Here is the link to the picture...for some reason I couldn't attach it!
For the top of the cake, I think she has used a ball of fondant and stuck the flowers on it to look like a dome. And for the flowers to go around the each tier, you can stick a sausage of fondant around the cakes and then stick the flowers on it. No one be able to see that because of the flowers.
