How I Add Flowers to Cake

It only takes a few tools to prepare the flowers for the cake. First cut the stems to the length desired. Take a toothpick and insert the end about  1/4″ into the stem. Using floral tape (best to use the tape with a wax coating), wrap tightly around the stem and toothpick to join the two. Insert toothpick into cake. The green floral tape will blend in with the greenery.

This method makes working with flowers on the cake much easier and they go in and come out a lot cleaner.

Be sure to only use organic and non-toxic flowers.
