Edible Flowers for Iced Wedding Cakes

Choose edible flowers for your iced wedding cake here.

Iced and semi-iced cakes are perfect for showcasing beautiful edible flowers because the flowers naturally adhere to the icing and allow your creativity to come to the fore. The fashion is now more towards soft butter iced cakes than royal icing but edible flower can still be used on the latter to great effect.

Things to consider. Do you want larger flowers for the cake topper and if so what is the diameter of the top tier of your cake? Do you want smaller flower to sit on the shoulders of the tiers where they meet to create a garland? Do you want a waterfall of flowers to come down the front of the cake? Do you want the symmetry of even sized identical flowers  or a natural organic look? Would you like to include some organic edible foliage as well?

Fill out your requirements below, pin pictures and ask any questions. We pick every box to order so as long as it is season we will happily pick to your specifications. Also read our guide to using fresh flowers on wedding cakes.http://maddocksfarmorganics.co.uk/latest-blog/using-fresh-flowers-wedding-cakes/

Your wedding is the most special day of your life. You want it to be perfect and so do we. Rather than charge you extra for the big day we charge you LESS and offer you 3 boxes of edible flowers to decorate your wedding cake for £37.50 or 5 boxes for £55. This ensures you have enough flowers to covered a multi-tiered wedding cake, the surround and stand and some spare flowers to scatter on the table as well if you wish. We can match the colours with other products such as edible flowers for cocktails, edible flowers for decorating salads and canapés to ensure your floral wedding looks wonderful. We can even match the flowers to your bouquet or the colour to the bridesmaid dresses where the season allows.

Edible flowers for wedding cakes are available from mid March until the middle of October subject to availability. If you wish to order outside of this time then please email Jan at maddocksfarmorganics@gmail.com and we can check availability. Winter flowers are much smaller and more dainty than summer flowers and mainly comprise pansies, violas and primulas. You can pre-order your wedding flowers for 2017 and would suggest regarding our FAQs for more information.
