I feel compelled to explain what the recipe did not say. You must use edible flowers grown without pesticides or sprays. If you do not, your guests could become quite ill.

The Garden Bridal Cake is a wonderful option for smaller, less formal wedding ceremonies. A beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers and blue ribbon reflects its summery garden theme.
