An excellent method that you can use to coordinate the wedding cake with the overall theme of your wedding is to deck it with flowers.
Here are a number of easy yet effective methods that you can use to suitable place flowers on your wedding cake.
a) Flower topper: This process basically entails either yourself or a hired florist arranging some flowers into groups, these flowers are typically of the same colour and type that you would find on the bridal bouquet. This method is incredibly easy for you to take advantage of, your only task would be to arrange them into little groups which you can do using a plastic base.
b) Rose sandwich: this is basically when you place a rose between the tiers of each cake. The cake for the wedding is typically build on thin pillars and then tiered with a gap that measures around 1 ¼ of an inch between each tier. You or your florist can then use this space to place roses which have been taped and cut to around 2 inches in length. One thing that you should be sure of is that the roses are packed tightly and are lushly laid with the wedding cake so that gaps are not showing.
c) Flower trail: this is essentially a flowing line made up of flowers that trails down the wedding cake. This particular method is most ideal for cakes that are specific tiered on top of one another. To begin, you must wire each flower head individually. Then group a few of these heads together, then secure and tape the top of the by, by pushing the wire stems which have been taped gently into the cake. Then you can begin to work your way down the cake pushing the heads of flowers in. In order to create some kind of strong band, you should consider placing the heads of the flowers closer together.
d) Linked flower toppers: if there is a gap present between the tiers of your wedding cake and an arrangement of flowers on each tier, then it’s very easy for you to link each of them together. Simply take a couple of stems of steel grass, and then use that in order to link the floral arrangements together.
One thing that you shouldn’t forget is that both foliages and flowers are not suitable for you to use on your wedding cake as they can contain poisons. Ivy being a good example, if you are unsure, then it’s best you consult a florist or the cake designer
