WEDDING CAKES – ON A BUDGET
Sugar flowers vs Artificial flowers
Flowers on a wedding cake complete the picture for a fairy tale wedding. Your flowers are only limited by the extent of your imagination. Any flower found in nature can be made from sugar (fondant), can be artificial or can be real on your cake. Your flower selection for your bouquet can be matched on your cake.
Sugar flowers are exquisite but are quite pricey as they are intricate and require a significant amount of time to make. Whilst they will last forever if stored carefully they will tend to fade if brightly coloured. If you are looking for a cheaper but still lovely alternative, artificial flowers can be a good option.
Artificial flowers look very real these days. Gone are the fake plastic roses to be replaced with silk flowers that are exquisitely crafted.
As always, the choice comes down the individual, whether to go with traditional sugar flowers, a more budget friendly option of artificial flowers.
Whatever your choice, using an experienced cake decorator will make any option a fairy tale success.
