Rose-Petal Wedding Cake
Rose-Petal Garland: To make a garland for an 8-inch-round tier, you'll require about a dozen fully opened roses in coordinating shades (we used 'Latin Ambiance,' 'Mystique,' and 'Skyline' roses) and 30 inches of 26-gauge wire (ours is yellow craft wire). Create garland on the day of the wedding and keep refrigerated. Remove petals from roses. Layer 2 or 3 petals and roll into a loose cylinder. Gently insert the wire through both sides of the roll to keep if from unraveling; slide flower roll along wire as far as it will go. Continue until garland is desired length. Place on cake, and twist ends together; conceal behind garland.
