Some advice on using organic roses on cakes..... it is tricky and required a bit of care
Roses are the one product that worries me most. Everybody would like fully opened blousey roses on their wedding cake, filling the room with fragrance BUT nobody want their roses to start dropping petals in a hot venue on a hot day. Please remember that unlike florist roses which are non food safe and treated to slow the opening process, naturally grown organic roses continue to open after they are picked and they will open at quite a fast rate on a warm day. Keep them in their punnets in the fridge for as long as possible as this will suspend their opening. If you want them to sit out on a cake for more than a couple of hours request that they are picked on a little bit of stem and are partially open. Use flower picks which contain water to supply the roses with water. Do not request fully open roses. If you are putting together the cake at the venue like this stunning example from The Blushing Cook then it is fine just request more open roses and to have them on the cake without additional water required.
This is what some of our customers have said this year about our roses…..
I wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and recommendations for the flowers for my wedding cake! The colours you sent through were lovely and I took your advice of making the rose sugar. The fragrance was wonderful and the rose worked really well with the rose/pistachio base – Charlotte
