Real Florals vs. Fake Blooms

When it comes to wedding cakes, many brides debate whether to decorate their cake with real or fake flowers. However, if you ask us, the answer is always crystal clear – real flowers are the way to go! Fresh blooms offer a natural, organic look to your cake that fake blooms simply cannot muster. Fake flowers aren’t always realistic-looking but instead, give off a plastic sheen that can diminish the overall elegance and beauty of your wedding.

If health and sanitary concerns lead you down the path of faux flowers, keep in mind that there are many ways in which florists attach real flowers to wedding cakes in a safe and clean way. Utilizing toothpicks and wrapping stems are just two methods to ensure your wedding cake and icing don’t even come in contact with natural petals. Additionally, you can also special order “edible flowers” from your florist and make it clear you plan to decorate your cake or other desserts and drinks with fresh blooms. Unless your florist has confirmed their flowers are safe for consumption, you should never assume they are edible.

The Topic of Cake Toppers
