do you think royal icing flowers on a wedding cake is Tacky or just dont look good
I think it depends on what type of flowers and what the bride wants.
IMO, I don't see the point using RI roses when BC roses would look the same (or better) AND they'd be edible.
If you're talking about drop flowers, they can be done to look nice even though fondant/gumpaste would look better.
So, is your poll about a specific type of flower(s)?
yes, morning glory. i dont know how to mack them out of fondant/gumpaste
I think Morning Glories would look fine in RI on a wedding cake. Beautiful even. So much better than flat drop flowers (which "could" look tacky).
thank you! this cake if for my mom and dad they are getting together again after 2yr of divorce. its will not be a wedding just a party at my home. they want to go to a JP
Sweet! Nice of you to make a cake and have a party for their special event. Hope you have fun and everything works out for them too!
Ok in Colette's book Wedding Cakes, there is a cake called Enchanted Garden which is COVERED in RI flowers. I think it's one of the prettiest cakes I've ever seen. I'm hoping to replicate it for my girlfriend's bridal shower in August.
It all depends on the design and how you color the flowers. Her flowers looked very realistic because she used different tones in the colors and dusted them with powdered colors after they were dry.
I'm kinda lost on this one. why would flowers made of RI look "tacky"?
I think if they are made well they will look very pretty.
