Certainly cakes can be decorated with both beautiful and edible flowers. The client has the option of fresh flowers, many of which are edible such as roses, gardenia, violets and pansies. A florist or cake vendor should be able to advise which fresh flowers are edible and safe to put on cakes.
There are a few key points to be mindful of when choosing fresh flowers. Where is the venue to be held? If it is somewhere outside that will be sitting in the warm sun, fresh flowers may suffer in the heat and not look their best. Also to be mindful of is the durability of the flower chosen. A delicate flower may not hold up well, wilting in an icing that is quite moist such as buttercream.
Another option that the client has are sugar flowers. Exact colours can be matched to your theme, there is no stress about flowers being available or in ‘season’ and are often much more durable in more trying conditions. The other added bonus is that as long as they are kept cool and dry they can be a beautiful keepsake of your special day.

You can have edible flowers made from buttercream or a specialist sugar paste that will give a finish of fine porcelain.
