Very new to cake decorating and have been asked for a 3 tier wedding cake with a large rose spray going down one side of it, which consists of about 20 or so roses and branches with ivy leaves. I'm fairly confident with making the roses, my main query is how far in advance can I create it and the best way to attach it to the cake? I'm assuming I don't put it on til cake is set up at venue....I've done flowers before but have always stuck them directly onto the cake. Any help appreciated
I would wire the roses and leaves into sprays, then put posy picks (little flower pots) on each tier, and fix your sprays into them. If you look at my golden wedding cake, that is a spray of about 5 roses, stephanotis and leaves and they are wired into a posy pick...yours will just be a longer spray! Good luck!
Forgot to say - if you are making the flowers from gum paste, you can make them months in advance and store them in a cardboard box somewhere dry
