Believe it or not, sugar flowers on a wedding cake is a fairly unusual request for bakers. Most brides assume ( correctly) that sugar flowers are more expensive, due to the highly skilled artistry and labor that goes into creating each flower, so they assume that getting fresh flowers from their florist will save them money.
Yes, getting fresh flowers may save you money ( depending on the flower chosen), but cheaping out may mean you run into other problems instead.
The truth about wedding flowers on cakes is that unknown to many of today’s brides and grooms, many wedding flowers can potentially be toxic and could pose a potentially dangerous health risk to you and your guests. So before you order that cake, check out this listing of potentially toxic flowers to have your baker in sugar instead of getting the real thing:
- Calla Lily
- Gloriosa lily
- Sweet pea
Also a note of caution, although other flowers such as roses and peonies might not be toxic in their own right, flowers were not meant to be placed on edible objects such as cakes, so they might not be as sanitary as a sugar flower made in a kitchen. Make sure your baker washes every flower completely before placing it on the cake to ensure you have a beautiful and very special day.
