Mother of the Bride, if your bride-to-be wants roses as décor on her wedding cake, be sure she considers sugar roses as well as fresh ones.
Even though fresh roses adorn many wedding cakes today, rest assured that handmade sugar roses can look just as gorgeous. Take a look at the examples above and below. What exquisite detail!
The key lies in finding a cake baker/designer who excels in an impeccable finished product. Be sure to ask to see photos of cakes she has made before making a decision about fresh vs. handmade sugar roses. It’s also a good idea to ask other MOBs and brides who have used her services how pleased they were with their own wedding cakes.
If your daughter doesn’t have a strong preference for one type of rose over the other, ask your baker/designer if sugar roses will be more or less expensive to do than fresh ones. You might as well take advantage of a possible opportunity to save a little money if the prices for each will be different, right?
Fresh or sugar—both can be beautiful. But above all, MOB, enjoy indulging in that fabulous cake on Wedding Day!
