I've not tried that yet - love doing buttercream flowers! But I read on the forum somewhere that the moisture from the buttercream isn't good for gumpaste - maybe you could cut up a small piece of foam, stick the flowers in that and add it to the cake with your buttercream? Just an idea, I've been thinking about this myself. I'm sure a more experienced decorator will give us suggestions!

Maybe I could do a small cake on top in fondant and put the flowers on that? That way my sister would have her buttercream cake, and I could use the flowers I made. There so pretty I don't want to not use them. My buttercream roses are not very good, but the gum paste ones look real. Thoughts, anyone?
