Nothing can compare to the color of fresh flowers, but
should they be on a cake.
fresh vs gum-paste flowers.
Pros – easily accessible, natural color
Cons – need water or they may wilt, chemicals (pesticides), some flowers are poisonous, stems fragile and limited design options on cake, limited to availablity
Pros – custom color and size, custom shape, can be draped
and arranged unlike fresh flowers, can be preserved for display
Cons – may cost more, color may not be natural
these hand made roses are bold red, look realistic and can be kept on display under glass.
