DIY // Fresh Flower Cake Topper

DIY fresh flower cake topper by Sugar & Cloth

I’ve been a little MIA on the DIY front around here recently, but this project will surely make it up to you. Why? Because it involves cake, macarons, and fresh flowers. I know, I can’t contain myself either…

If I’m really honest, I’ve never attempted a fresh flower cake topper before, but let me just tell you that using a cake vase is pure magic. Literally all you do is stick flowers in it, so simple!

Materials:

Place the cake vase on top of your iced cake. Fill it with a small amount of water, just enough to fill all of the holes.

Cut the stems to the flowers short, and begin placing them into the holes of the vase starting from the outside working in. The instructions for the vase say to start from the center working outwards, but I found that working from the outside in made the center flowers stand up a bit higher, which I liked.

Once all of the flowers are placed in the holes, use smaller buds to fill in any gaps.

  • I always wondered how they put real flowers on without getting the goo from them on the cake! Very cool.

    Flowers speak the language of love. It also speaks your concern and condolence on specific occasions of grief and sorrow. One of the best ways of expressing your love and affection to your beloved ones is through flowers – The flowers, colorful, fragrant and fresh from the gardens. ^’

    Until next time

    A beautifully landscaped property can bring pleasure to you, your family, as well as your neighborhood. This practically brings pride to your humble home, making you a proud owner of your lot. To create a landscape that is both grandiose and easy to maintain, you need to consider some important things and basically some useful home landscaping ideas. The scope and limitation of your property size, the climatic conditions of your area where you live, and the types of soil you have to deal with in your property are some of the primary factors you should consider.^;.*
