Omg gorgeous! Where did you find the brooches? I think that I would like to do this, but I’m not sure where to look for brooches.

Have you a plan for setting it on the cake? I’m planning to do my own cake in fondant with sugar flowers – the flowers will have stems that I need to get into the cake. The plan is to get a few sturdy straws (like grab a bunch from Starbucks) and insert them into the cake, then place the flowers stems into the “holes”. You could perhaps do something similar. If you do, I would go for the venti straws, as they are sturdier. Another option is to just ask the bakery if they have a preferred solution and let them handle it.

@Mrs_Harmer_to_be:  In terms of straws vs dowels, I would go for straws if you’re planning to do a fondant covered cake – it will be easier to insert into the cake as the edges will cut through the fondant. You can just glue them onto the H just as you had planned for the dowels. It all depends on how heavy the H is though… so yes, talk to the bakery and bring it so they can asses it!
