I was chatting with a friend last week and she mentioned that she was making a birthday cake for her mom and wanted to run by the corner deli to pick up some flowers to put on it. I immediately told her that she can’t just put any flowers on a cake. She has to make sure that they’re pesticide-free and that I’m sure the guy at the deli couldn’t guarantee if they were.
When planning the décor for their wedding cake many couples will ask their baker for a clean buttercream or fondant icing and then have real flowers put on each tier as decoration.
This design is very simple and classic and can also be very affordable, but whether your baker of florist will be supplying you with the flowers—or you’re doing it yourself—it’s very important that the flowers you select are pesticide-free to avoid poisoning your guests.
