A mould growing in flower can be an absolute mood spoiler. If you are buying packaged flowers, make sure you check for any web-like, greyish appearance in the flowers. If there’s any, go for another packet or purchase fresh flowers.
The colour of the flowers is what adds an edge to the cakes. Choose a colour that will complement the base colour of your cake/icing and not look mismatched. Check for the vibrancy of the colour before buying the flowers.
Floppy or limping flowers make your cakes look dull. Check if the flowers are freshly picked and browning bits in the petals. If you find any of these, go for another packet.
