While I’ve never done this before, I would think that if you are having a buttercream frosting, the “stems” could be pressed in to the side and should stick. Can you give them to the shop and have them attach them for you? I would think they would be able to if you showed them this picture and let them know you aren’t looking for the ribbon part, just the flowers.

OR – you could glue the flowers to some ribbon and then they can put the ribbon around the cake – very simple and can totally be done on buttercream frosting.

FutureMrseJohnson had some great points….I love Martha’s paper flowers, and that cake design is so gorgeous.

Very cute!

If you’re doing buttercream icing, you have to make sure that the paper flowers don’t touch the icing because they’ll get grease stains on them. BC is mostly butter or shortening (depending on where you get your cake from).
