This wedding cake has fresh flowers to adorn a simple, tiered cake. The top of the cake can be designed ahead of time on a floral cage filled with florist foam. You will need to inform your baker that it would be well to insert supporting dowels in the highest cake layer to support the weight of the cake topper.
For this look, you'll need the following fresh flowers and florist supplies:
FOR THE TOPPER:
SECOND HIGHEST LAYER (Pulled from the Flowers Ordered Above):
MIDDLE LAYERS OF THE CAKE & SIDE BOUQUET (Both pulled from the flowers listed below)
OPTIONAL: #40 Wired Ribbon
Tape the ribbon's cut end to a toothpick with the wire stem wrap. Insert into cake where the nosegay will be placed. Allow ribbon to trail down the cake and onto the table Create a small bouquet and anchor it to the side of the cake. To attach the nosegay to the cake, pierce the nosegay with the skewer and insert the skewer into the cake. It may need a couple of skewers to bear the weight of the small bouquet.
The rest of the flowers are laid on top of a clear disposable plate in the center of the cake. (Note: the clear plates must be laid on the top of each layer while the cake is being assembled. Otherwise it may not fit. Be sure to alert your baker of this when she delivers the cake and begins setup.)
