    Well, I didn’t pick either. I just thought i was getting a plain croquembouche, and was surprised with spun sugar and real flowers!

    I think you should just figure out what’s most important to you. The type of flower, or money.

    unless you REALLY like the sugar flowers (and dont mind the Extra cost) then I would go with real flowers…I personally like the way real ones look compared to sugar.

    I think sugar flowers are gorgeous, but they are expensive.  Cost is justified, though.  It takes a lot of skill and time to make them.

    If you go real flowers, make sure to order organic flowers if you are purchasing them yourself.  Chemicals can transfer to the cake.

    I’d prefer real flowers, as long as they are not poisonous (some are, some aren’t, some are even edible) because they are cheaper. Sugar flowers are pretty, but you are paying a ton of money for the work involved in creating them. Even then, they aren’t edible, even if they are made from sugar, since they have lots of wires in them.

    I am going with sugar flowers because 1) I am allergic to real flowers, and 2) I don’t think real flowers would be to sanitary. What if there was a bug that came in with the flowers? Eeewww!!!
