Floral Paper Suggestion

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have a request for a cake for a retirement. They want a bouquet of gum paste flowers that the recipient can keep. Can anybody think of what I could use for the tissue paper that wraps around a bouquet you get from the florist? I would assume that floral paper, even the waxed kind, is not food grade.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Wafer paper is edible. It's a little thicker than tissue paper, but it may work.

It will crack, though. If you LIGHTLY steam it - QUICKLY - it will curl.

I thought about the wafer paper, but I'm also worried about the cracking issue. icon_sad.gif  Especially after I try to put a bouquet of flowers on it.

You could try a rice paper "wrap" wrapper. They are pliable whendamp and I should think that once they are formed to shape, with the bouquet, eventually they would dry out. I haven't tried this, but it's an idea.

There. Their. They're not the same.

^^That's a better idea. You can buy those in a good supermarket (not walmart) in the fresh veggie section by the wonton wrappers or sometimes they have them in the Asian food aisle.

I'll give the rice paper a try!  Also, was just thinking if parchment paper would work?  What do you think?

What about cutting a piece out of the clear treat bags you can get? Or even a cake pop wrapper, put the stems through the closed end and wrap some ribbon around the outside.

I don't understand why you don't just use floral paper, or regular tissue paper. I know they are not food safe, but no one is going to eat the flowers. Unless they are being presented on a cake and the paper would be touching the cake of course...

I also like the clear bag idea. Can't use floral paper/tissue paper as it will be laying directly on the cake.

You could also use dessert/candy favor bags, they come in all sorts of colors & designs...

fancyflours sells food safe tissue paper - I've used it to line boxes for cookies and chocolates - it comes in sheets in a tube (about the size of a half-sheet). HTH!
