I don't do many wedding cakes.. but I have had a bride ask for fresh flowers on a dummy cake. I am wondering if anyone has done this before and what the best method for attaching them would be. She would like them on the front of the cake on the top tier as well as on the ledge between the tiers. Can you still use flower spikes in foam?? Thanks in advance.

Yes, for a cake topper you can place flowers in a florist foam that's been soaking over night. For the base of the cake you can place the cake on a riser with legs then insert floral stems into water filled floral picks and tuck them under the legs of the plateau all the way around. For the area along the rims of a cake you need two things, a cake with a 4" difference in size (example: 12 - 8 - 4) and more floral foams (soaked).
