Wedding Cakes With Fresh Flowers

Although wedding cakes with fresh flowers are absolutely beautiful, creating this look is not as easy as it seems. If you do want to use flowers with your wedding cake you will need to talk to your florist about issues which may arise such as safety, contamination and presentation. Many flowers are toxic and should be avoided.

Wedding Cakes With Fresh Flowers - Safety

Although wedding cakes with fresh flowers are wonderful to look at, you need to think about safety. To insure that you and all your guests are safe you must first ensure that the flowers you are choosing do not have any toxins in them. Many flowers are toxic for human consumption and therefore you absolutely cannot use them on your wedding cake.


Unfortunately, when designing wedding cakes with fresh flowers, it is not only the toxic flowers you must worry about. Even if a flower is non toxic you will need to make sure that they are not grown in an area with heavy use of pesticide, as this could also make people sick. You do not want your guest’s memory of your wedding to be of one which made them ill, do you?

Wedding Cakes With Fresh Flowers



If you are set on using wedding cakes with fresh flowers you should keep that in mind when shopping for your bakery, or even your florist. Some bakeries and florists who work heavily in the wedding industry may grow flowers themselves for the sole purpose of being decorations on wedding cakes. These would be non toxic flowers which are grown without the aid of pesticides or other poisons.

So, don’t forget to ask your wedding professionals what safeguards they use and what services they offer. One more question you should address is to make sure that they are using clear plastic flower picks to insert the flowers in the cake, make sure they are not sticking the stem directly in the cake without any barrier.

Wedding Cakes With Fresh Flowers - Presentation

Many brides choose wedding cakes with fresh flowers because of the fantastic presentation at the reception. Now that you know how to use safety and avoid contamination when creating wedding cakes with fresh flowers, the next thing to tackle is presentation. Using flowers on cakes is wonderful, but these flowers should have meaning and they should closely reflect your wedding theme or colors.

If you are looking to just closely match everything, picking flowers of the same color as your bridesmaid dresses or other decorations will do, however, if you want it to match completely you may want to have the flowers on the wedding cake match the bouquets or centerpieces. To keep the flowers looking the best for the longest you want to keep both the flowers and the wedding cake chilled or refrigerated for as long as possible in separate containers prior to decorating.


The wedding cakes with fresh flowers look does the best when you can also use flower picks with a water reservoir attached to the flowers. Between keeping everything cold for as long as possible and having fresh water available through the stem of the flower the flowers are less likely to wilt, which would certainly ruin the effect you are trying to create.

Wedding Cakes With Fresh Flowers - Decorating Tips

Your florist or baker should be able to help you in this area, but it is always best knowing exactly what you want going in. Wedding Cakes with fresh flowers are beautiful and wonderful, but there are so many variations to choose from.


The most popular way to use flowers on a wedding cake is by cascading the flowers, this looks like a spiral of flowers going around the cake. This looks best with larger cakes, though, so if your cake is on the smaller side this may not be the right look. Another popular way to decorate with flowers is to put the flowers on each tier, circling each one completely. If you have a smaller cake you might want to consider having smaller flowers scattered throughout the cake, this will still bring the same effect of having fresh flowers, but it will not be as overpowering.


Finally, many people want flowers incorporated into the look but they really do not want them on the layers of the cake. If you are one of these people who want wedding cakes with fresh flowers without them everywhere, you should consider using a floral cake topper.
