    I am not saying that at all....I know a lot of bakers who use fresh flowers....I am just advising you of what I have been taught in floral design school and that it is not a practice of mine because I don't want to take the risk and get sued....that's all....

    There are flowers who are considered edible, that's why I posted a link in my first post I just wanted to advise you to make sure the stems are covered or the flowers are in a container, that's all.....you guys can make your own decisions, it was just an advice.

        Great information. I am sure this will be useful to many!

        I had no clue about the risks of real flowers!
