Fresh flowers can be used to gorgeous effect as decoration for wedding cakes. Once you’ve selected your baker, work with them so that you can choose only flowers that work well with food. This is important because there are flowers that shouldn’t touch food due to issues of toxicity, as well as flowers that are perfectly safe to use with food, but still not considered edible.
Roses are among the worlds most popular flowers and they’re equally as popular for use in weddings. In bouquets or centrepieces, and adorning the cake. One benefit of roses is the virtually unlimited selection of colours to choose from. Another benefit is the wide variety of sizes – anything from small, delicate tea roses to the showier sort with large, frilly blooms. With roses, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to find a colour and style that coordinated perfectly with the look of your cake.
It’s no secret that flowers can be terribly expensive. If you’re seeking a flower that costs less, but is still extremely attractive, consider the gerbera daisy. The centre of a gerbera daisy is oftentimes yellow, but they can be found in a wide variety of colours as well. Gerbera daisies are known for their delicate petals and they are another flower that’s available in a wide range of vibrant shades such as blue, pink, purple and orange.
If you desire a polished, classic and elegant atmosphere for your wedding tulips should be on your list. Tulips have delicate, cup-shaped blooms and are available in many different colours from the palest pastels to vibrant and bright shades. A very important consideration when selecting tulips – some varieties are quite fragrant, and you’ll want to choose flowers that have no scent so they won’t interfere with the flavor of your cake.
Another type of flower that is popular for weddings is the freesia. One thing to remember with this flower, however, is the fact that they are very strongly scented. Due to this, it’s best if they’re used sparingly, along with other flowers that have no scent. Freesia are African flowers that have a long, funnel-like shape. They come in shades of white and yellow, and work best in weddings with muted, pale colour palettes.
These are just a few varieties of flowers that are desirable for decorating wedding cakes. Your baker or wedding consultant will be able to provide you with many more choices.
