BUTTER ICED CAKES
Butter 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 very quickly. The flowers for iced cakes tend to be a little bit more formal in style than those for naked cakes but we pick to your requirement so let us know.
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 flowers or a natural organic look (like the last image)? Would you like to include some organic edible foliage as well (we will include unless you request not)?
We recommend an average of 1 box per tier for a standard size cake. This will comprise 1/3 larger flowers for the topper and a mixture of smaller and medium flowers for the tiers. If you would like a lot of flowers for scattering around the base or your cake has a very large diameter then pop on an additional box.
The fashion is now more towards soft butter iced cakes than royal icing but edible flowers can still be used on Royal Icing. We would recommend using florists picks for larger flowers for the top (request stems with summers flowers) and you will need to use a little edible glue or liquid icing if you want to stick edible flowers to the sides. Please be aware that this takes time and fresh flowers don't like sitting out for long. Often dried edible flowers or pressed work well on royal icing (see below) as they still offer a natural look but can be attached in advance and then left.
Fill out your requirements below, pin pictures and ask any questions. We pick every box to order so as long as it is in season we will happily pick a mix to meet to your specifications. Also read our guide to using fresh flowers on wedding cakes.HERE. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS PRODUCT IS FOR MIXED FLOWERS. IF YOU WANT JUST ONE VARIETY OF FLOWER THEY ARE AVAILABLE SEPARATELY.
Your wedding is the most special day of your life. You want it to be perfect and so do we. 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 April until the middle of October subject to availability. Outside of these times we have some winter flowers. These are much smaller and more dainty than summer flowers and mainly comprise pansies, violas and primulas. You can pre-order your wedding flowers for 2019 and would suggest regarding our FAQs for more information.
