Decorating your wedding cake with fresh flowers is a unique way to add some freshness & realism to your wedding cake design. Its also a great way to match your hall decorations with your wedding cake if you have chosen to use fresh flowers as part of your decorations.
I absolutely love fresh flowers. They are used in my gift boxes, as decorations on my celebration cakes and occasionally to decorate my cake studio. I love the freshness, luxury & style it lends to a space & the products I use them in.
If I wasn’t a cake decorator, I probably would have been a florist or an interior decorator and even though i’m not doing any of these professionally, I’m glad that I get incorporate them in my business & cake designs.
If you are a bride thinking of using fresh flowers for her wedding cake, then read on.
1. Book for the fresh flowers from your florist
Book for the flowers from your florist and have it delivered to me the day before your wedding. As I will only be using the flowers to decorate your cake and not part of the event planners, I will not be responsible for choosing or selecting the flowers for your cake. That responsibility if for you & your event decorator/coordinator.
After the flowers have been delivered to me, I will be responsible for styling the cake with the flowers.
2. Book for a cake tasting/ consultation with me
At the cake tasting/ consultation, we will discuss the design of your cake as well as how your chosen flowers will compliment the cake beautifully. We will also discuss some wedding cake flavours & how they can compliment the flowers you choose for your decorations.
Some important things to note before booking for the fresh flowers from your florist
- Not all flowers are edible & some flowers may be toxic so make sure you confirm from your florist which flowers will be suitable to decorate a cake with to prevent any contamination. Nookies boutique cakes will not be held liable for any food contamination that may result from the use of toxic flowers.
- Your cake price will not include the price of the fresh flowers that will be used to decorate your cake. You are to purchase the flowers separately & have it delivered to me the day before your wedding.
