Sugar flowers on buttercream icing

Needing advice on placing sugar flowers on a buttercream iced cake. Can the wired and posy-picked flowers sit directly on the cake? My worry is the sugar flowers going limp. TIA


Hi CinTaMaNis

If the flowers are against the cake for a long time, they will begin to soften. However, if you paint the back of the flowers with candy melts or tempered white chocolate they will remain firm.


Thank you for the information. It has, most certainly, quelled my fears.
