The chrysanthemums, roses and gerbera can individually be used to mark the separation between each tier of the wedding cake. An example of this would be red roses in between each layer of cake for a three tier cake. The wedding cake flowers can also be used not as a separator for each tier but also as a decoration for the cake. Lilies of the valley do well as a focal point for each tier of the cake. The flower can be placed on the topmost tier of a three or more layer cake and then subsequent flowers can be attached to each other with a fondant vine design. The colors of the wedding cake flowers should coordinate with the motif of the wedding as well as complement the colors used in the wedding cake.
Fresh wedding cake flowers such as gerberas or hyacinths can also be individually attached to the cake sides in a polka dot pattern. It is usually the smaller varieties of flowers that suit this kind of wedding cake flower arrangement. Bunches of small flowers such as hyacinths, cornflowers and smaller varieties of mums can also be placed in strategic places of the wedding cake. Using different colors that complement each other or colors that are similar to each other will help to bring out the best of a plain off white wedding cake.
