PRLog - May 30, 2010 - ORADELL, N.J. -- While nature provides a stunning array of flowers that would add beauty to your wedding cake, one needs to be aware of the safety concerns when combining fresh flowers and food. We recommend the use of sugar flowers on a cake since fresh flowers are often sprayed with pesticides and many fresh flowers are toxic. When using fresh flowers after considering these saftey concerns, you should request that the florist put the stems in picks to prevent the water flowing from the flower into the cake. Stems should never be stuck into a cake!
Sugar Cymbidium Orchid
Below is a compilation of toxic flowers, but this list should not be considered absolute.
Bird of Paradise
Carnation - pink family
Lily of the Valley
Star of Bethelem
