I would try piping large circles of royal icing (thick royal icing) starting with the roses on the bottom.  Or, alternatively, try using a melted white chocolate.  Let it harden a bit and then attach each rose, starting at the bottom.  What a pretty cake!!!!

Without using a stick to the back of the rose that would go into the cake, I agree with Narasmom, I use melted chocolate and color it the color of my roses or fondant.  Take your time, allowing each one to dry before applying adding the next one.

 

Gorgeous Cake.

You always build these cascade from the bottom up.  Make sure the roses on the bottom are firmly stuck on, since they are providing support for the roses further up.

I have been having the exact same problem, I have a lady who has ordered her cake online and wants me to take off some brown roses and replace them with cream ones. The best advice I have come across that I am going to use is royal icing. It is supposed to stick extremely strong and hard. I am a little worried about having to take roses off and replace them though! :S . My roses may not fit in their place!

Hello, I am new to cake central - excellent site! What I do, leave the wire (stem) from the rose about 2" to 3" inches.get a straw and cut it a bit longer than your stem. Insert stem into the straw and poke into the cake.

Hope this helps.

All the best!
