How to incorporate flowers into your wedding cake

How to incorporate flowers into your wedding cake Credit: www.kcmoorefoto.comQ – We love flowers and want to incorporate them into our cake design. What do you recommend we look for?

"A cake adorned with flowers, for me is a perfect combination. The first thing I recommend is to book a consultation with your designer. During my meetings, we discuss colour schemes, themes and ideas. I then create a bespoke design incorporating any specific arrangements we’ve discussed.

"Once you’ve decided on the design, there are several options available ranging from fresh to hand-made sugar versions. Fresh flowers need to be sourced from a reputable supplier to ensure they have been treated correctly. From my point of view, each stem then has to be dripped in a safety seal, wrapped with floral tape and then attached to the cake usually at the last minute to ensure it stays as fresh as possible. One of the benefits of this option is the blooms will match the rest of your floral displays perfectly.

"As a cake designer, I love nothing more than creating sugar flowers, from an elegant rose to a simple cherry blossom and pretty much everything in-between. They can be created in a variety of colours to suit your theme and can be preserved and kept as a keepsake from your special day.

"One trend I’m seeing at the moment is dried flowers. If the boho lux vibe is your thing, then dried blooms are a must, again these come in a variety of hues from natural tones to vibrant bouquets.

"The last option I suggest would be silk or artificial flowers, I work with a few suppliers who offer these, and they’re so realistic you literally can’t tell the difference."
