How do I decorate a wedding cake using fresh flowers

If you would like to learn how to place fresh flowers on your cakes, my friend Karen Hill at Wedding Cake Art (a trained florist as well as cake decorator) can help you learn how.

Can you see how I separated the tiers of the cake to allow for a gap for the stems to be hidden. Those stems could be either wired or placed in water viles. This is the best way to preserve the cake from decorator damage as there is no need to poke them into the cake. Pull it all together with  florist tape and poke into blobs of icing to secure.
