I am making a birthday cake and the plates they are using show a full rose and stem- what is the best way- instead of floral tape- to cover the stem? I am making gumpaste roses- should I use fondant or gum paste to cover the wire?
I love that look of fondant stems for flowers with large stems but many applications would still require a wire. Any suggestions of getting this fondant snake on a wire. Otherwide the only thing you can do with this flower is attach it to the side of a cake. I've seen this application with flowers extending from the cake but wondered how they got the wire in there.
