Gumpaste Flower Bouquet

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there! I have been searching and searching... can someone help me or direct me to a good tutorial on how to arrange a gumpaste flower bouquet (I have made peonies, roses, hydrangea, jasmine, and berries with wires) and then insert it on the side of a cake (without it tearing out from the weight)?
Do you arrange them first, tape them together, and then stick into the cake? Or stick in the biggest flower (peony) and then add filler flowers around that?
And at what angles do you insert the flowers into the cake so that gravity won't pull them down?
Greatly appreciative of any direction!!! Here is an example of what I wish to do (flower bouquets in the side of a cake, not on the top). Thanks!

Hi, i have, on the sides of fake cakes, covered a piece of styrofoam with fondant. Then glue it to your cake with sugar glue of some type. I actually made my glue by melting some fondant with water. I wanted it to be thicker than regular sugar glue. Then i put the flowers (toothpick, wire or whatever they were on) into this fondant covered styrofoam.I do this for the tops of fondant covered cakes also ( fake or real cakes. Of course , you cut the wires or toothpicks to fit the styrofoam. works really great. hth
