Well, this one is probably obvious, but I always see roses on cakes!

My sister wanted to put some flowers on her wedding cake, and just decided to use some of the extras that had come for/with the church arrangements.

Here is an example:

Sorry I don’t have a good answer to this question, but missmouse – I was wondering if you know where your sister got her cake stands?

I would also make sure that they’re grown without pesticides. I know that some bakers refuse to use real flowers because of the traces of pesticides that can be left on them. So just watch out for that too! 🙂 Good luck with your cake!

Here’s a list of edible flowers and how to cook them and pictures. If you’re doing fondant on the cake (most likely not), then you can floral wrap the bottom and stick wires in to hold them on there and not worry about them being toxic. That’s what most bakeries do even if they are edible.
