Roses are one of the most popular flowers for wedding cakes and it can be difficult to decide how best to display them if they are the only flower chosen for the cake design. This wedding cake reflects the style of popular hand-tied bouquets by creating a massed dome of full rose blooms and keeping the cake tiers plain and simple to accentuate the top tier. This style of arrangement is a great starting point for those who perhaps struggle to wire flowers into sprays
