Hi everyone I just found this great site!:)


Im based in Ireland and there are few an far between good cake sites or shops where I can learn!


I have recently got back into making gum paste flowers and loving it! I do have two  questions for any gum paste flower expert!...


What is the best way to attach wired flowers to cakes?


I plan on eventually selling the gum paste flowers in sets and different colour ways so any advise in selling and how to package them would be a great help as this is kinda floundering me!!. as they are so delicate!


Thanks Celd

Just called in to say Hi!, sorry can't help you with your flower questions, I do make them when I have to but I'm not very good at them yet.

Hi Celd, I'm sure you'll get lots of good advice here. I know for wired flowers that you can insert them into a posy pick which ensures that the wires don't touch the cake. I bought some from my local cake decorating shop but I'm sure they can be purchased from ebay etc.

You can also put them into straws! If you have a lot of wires, you can use the bubble tea/boba tea straws to fit more.
