This dendrobium orchid wedding cake is so simplistic and elegant. When you use fresh flowers to decorate wedding cakes, you have to take steps to ensure the flowers are sanitized and prepared in a way not to contaminate the cake.
Dendrobium Orchids are separate florets on a long, single stem. Start by washing your hands, as the oils from your fingers can bruise delicate white petals.
Rinse each long stem, immersing in a cool water bath and allowing to rest in for maximum water absorption.
Cut many florets off the stem and allow to rest on paper towels to dry. Leave the slender green stem attached.
