UNPACKING THE FLOWERS
Each spray is wrapped with foam where the stem is anchored. Holding the flower by the stem, unwind foam from the flower. Careful not to pull on the foam because it may break parts of the flowers. Leave the foil wrapping as it provides a hygienic contact point with the cake.
REPAIRING BROKEN PARTS
After unpacking the flowers, broken parts can be repaired as follows. Mix up a small amount of royal icing using any brand, following the directions on the jar. Tint the royal icing to the shade that you need, then apply a thin bead of it to the broken edge. Press the two broken edges together, and allow it to set dry at least one hour before placing it on the cake.
Small breaks can be hidden by carefully rearranging the flowers on the spray. The wires holding each flower can be rearranged as you desire to cover small chips in the petals or leaves, and these imperfections make the flower sprays look more realistic.
Due to the handmade nature of this product there may be slight imperfections on the flower, which give each flower a distinct five and natural look.
In glass measuring cup mix
1 teaspoons of Super Gum (CMC) powder
4 teaspoons of water
Stir until powder is dissolved.
Place in microwave 20 seconds. It will turn into a thick goo.
Keep stirring it to a smooth consistancy. Use a paint brush to apply it to the broken petal. Hold the broken pieces together for a couple of seconds.
Give it about an hour to fry before you start arranging it. Good as new!
If you have a flower tha is crushed beyong repair, what you can do is remove the good petals and attach them to another flower.
Order the flowers as far as 2-3 months ahead in case we need to order more for you.
Though these are made of edible material and by far, enhance the look of your cake over real flowers, I doubt you will want to eat them. However, you may want to preserve them in a decanter. They will make a lovely display. They are made of hard icing and dried hard so they can be imported and shipped to you with very little breakage. Keep them out of sunlight because light fades colors. Store on the shelf. They will last as long as you need them to.
Proper Refrigeration (when on cakes):
Flowers present best in refrigerators that maintain low to moderate humidity. If you have a refrigerator with high humidity, such as a walk-in, minimal storage time is recommended. Test your refrigerator with one flower to see how it responds.
Since sugar flowers are hand-made and of delicate nature, you may find minimal breakage. Although we package as efficiently as we can, there will always be potential for breakage. To fix a broken flower, mix a fresh batch of royal icing, and color it to match the flower, and finally join the broken points of the flower together and let them dry before arranging the flowers on the cake.
