Can you use fresh daisies on cakes? If so, what do you do to them before you set them on the cake? Where on the stem do you cut them?

Thanks!

Martha Does It

You know, I haven't done it myself, but I saw Martha Stewart do that with flowers for a dessert once so if Martha does it, it must be OK right? :-)

keeping flowers fresh looking on cakes

Hi michelle:o). Have you tried brushing daisies or any flower with egg whites (warmed, then cooled) before putting them on the cake? I think this works for grapes. I was wondering if it works for flowers as well.

Fresh Daisies
by: Michelle (admin)

Hi Melissa,

You can use fresh daisies, as long as you know they haven't been sprayed with pesticides.

There are two ways to approach this:

1. Use mini floral water picks and trim the stems to fit in to the picks. Then push the picks into the cake where you need them.

2. Cut the heads off the daises and attach floral wire by hooking through the underside of the head and twisting to secure. Place in the cake where required.
