Real flowers can be an enchanting addition to a wedding cake - adding a vibrant, natural touch with the same colours as your bridal flowers. But when it comes to cake decorating, it’s important to keep safety in mind: many real flowers contain pesticides and some, such as lilies or hydrangeas, are even toxic. Therefore, your cake designer must be the one to carefully add the fresh blooms, making sure that the stems are individually wrapped and that a barrier is in place so no sap will drip into the cake.
Additionally, don't forget to consider the season and the weather. For example, peonies are only available in May and June, while hot summer days can cause fast flower wilting. Despite the potential precautions, real flowers can be a beautiful and inexpensive way to top off your cake.
Beautiful, realistic, and food-safe, sugar flowers are the perfect way to customise any wedding cake. A talented cake designer will hand-craft each flower with food-safe ingredients and equipment. Of course, such skill and artistry come at a cost, with each flower taking between one hour and several hours to complete - but your wedding day keepsake can last forever with the right conditions (low humidity, out of direct sunlight). No matter the theme or colour plan, with the help of your cake designer, you can find a sugar flower design that fits your budget and completes your big day.
