how do you place real flowers on a wedding cake?

I have inserted them into a flower pick
Just half fill the flower pick with some fondant and gently push the wires down into that.

Some people use straws also.

But remember - some flowers are toxic. Olianders for instance - absolutely deadly - so be careful what flowers you place on the cake.

Yep! You can use flower picks or straws. I close off one end of my straw by melting the ends together. Just poke it into the cake and place the flower stem into the straw. No need to ad any water - just make sure the flowers have been sitting in water a while prior to using them. HTH icon_biggrin.gif

ooohh YAY!!! I've been trying to figure out how to use fresh flowers w/out having to worry about them wilting! About how long will the flowers last this way and how long do you let them sit in water before placing them on the cake?

I soak them overnight and put them on the cake as last minute as possible. They should last 24-48 hours, but I wouldn't push it.

COOL!!!!! If you needed to, could you put a small amount of water in the straws since the ends are sealed off or would you stay completely away from that? BTW, your 1st wedding cake rocks!!!!!

I'm sorry...one more question I just thought of. Do you cut the stems to the length you want them and just place them in the sink to soak overnight or keep the stems in tact and let them soak that way?
