Flowers are fairly new to me. I have made quite a few of the basics (roses, carnations, daisies, sunflowers, blossom) but I don't think they are as delicate and lovely as the many I aspire to on here. Up until now, I have made flowers without wires so I can attach with royal or tylo glue. I want to make much higher quality flowers so I have bought all the bits and bobs and wires etc and learnt all the techniques. However, I am confused about attaching them. When I watch the cake shows on tv they stick the wires in the cake, but from what I can see from here etc this is a total no no. Do I therefore find a way of attaching lump of fondant to stick the wires in? And then disguising the fondant? I have seen those plastic holders but surely if it was a big spray that these would then be something that would make massive holes all over the cake? Hmm. Confused.com!
No rush, this is an ongoing learning curve for me but I would be really grateful for any advice/insight/tips
