The sweetest blooms

The sweetest blooms

Q We love flowers and want to incorporate them into our cake. What should we take into consideration?
A Heather Tilstone says: I adore flowers on cakes and advise my couple to consider hand-crafted sugar flowers first. Sugar flowers are perfect for cakes, as they won't wilt, are non-toxic, can be crafted to match your fresh flowers and can be a longlasting reminder of your wedding day. Handmade sugar flowers are a showstopper piece of art and your guests will be wowed by how realistic they can look.

Of course, some couples do like to use fresh flowers too, these can also look wonderful, but it's worth bearing in mind that not all flowers can go on cakes as they may be poisonous, and as they may wilt quickly, it might be worth bringing your cake cutting forward to an earlier time.

Talking things over with your cake designer and florist is your best bet, as they will advise you on what's best for your preferred design and the time of year.
