Consider the Darling Duo Open Rose Bundle to be the secret weapon for your next edible masterpiece.

Whether it’s glamorous, lux greatness you’re going for, or you’re simply experimenting and rolling up your sleeves to get creative, it’s time to introduce this curated open rose bundle into your custom cake rotation.

Made with from-scratch gumpaste, the best quality food colors in the industry, and pre-wired for the ultimate flexibility and sturdiness, these two open roses paired together are going to be the GOAT of your classic cakes collection. (Side note: will blush + white ever go out of style??? I think not.)

The flexible and thoughtful design that’s ingrained into Kelsie Cake’s signature Open Roses is complemented with easy tutorials and videos, so you can follow the same tried-and-true decorating process that thousands of other customers have, too (these aren’t our best sellers for nothing!)

Two bestselling flowers in one adorable bundle!

One large (4”) blush open rose is paired with one small (2.5”) white open rose, both finished off with elegant gold stamens.

What I could never figure out, though, was why didn’t anyone buy them both together?! ?

FAQs

How do I take care of the flowers before I use them?

Sugar Flowers are shelf-stable at room temperature, due to their sugar content and low moisture. Keep the flowers out of direct sunlight (it can fade the colors) as well as extreme heat/cold, and especially out of humidity. Some refrigerators are very humid, and can cause the flowers to melt, so I recommend placing the flowers on your cake before serving. Each flower arrives in a box suitable for storage and comes with a care guide.

How soon will I receive my flowers?

Sugar Flowers in The Shop are available for shipping immediately. I ship all orders myself from my home studio, so your flowers will be carefully and lovingly packaged up within 2 business days of your order. Shipping takes about 3-5 days in the US via the Post Office with standard shipping. International shipping can take up to 6 weeks. Rush shipping is also available at checkout.If you are concerned about your order arriving in time, please contact me with your event date to confirm that the flowers will arrive before your event.

can you eat sugar flowers? blog post

Are sugar flowers edible?

Sugar Flowers are made with edible ingredients (gumpaste, egg whites, sugar) however they also contain non-edible materials such as wires which are used to hold the petals together and arrange the flowers. The wired flowers are not meant to be eaten, and should be removed prior to serving your cake.

Is it safe to ship the flowers? What if they break?

I’ve shipped thousands of flowers since I started my shop so I’ve found the best ways to safely package your flowers with lots of padding and fragile stickers! I’ve had very few packages arrive damaged, however I can’t guarantee the actions of the post office once I drop off your order. I always recommend ordering far in advance to account for damage or delays, and to order extra flowers if you’re in a time crunch.
If your flowers were damaged beyond repair during shipping, please send photos of the damage ASAP. We’ll work together to figure out if you need a repair, a replacement, or a refund. For minor damage, such as a broken petal, a tutorial on how to repair can be found on the Kelsie Cakes YouTube channel.

How do I remove Sugar Flowers from the box?

Carefully remove your Sugar Flowers from the packaging

Bend the flexible floral wire stem and lift the Sugar Flower out of the foam

Gently open up the petals for flowers that have individually wired petals (such as open roses)

If you are not using your flowers immediately, the box they arrived in is the perfect place to store your flowers

How do I store Sugar Flowers?

Always store Sugar Flowers in a cool, dry, dark place.

Moisture, humidity, and sunlight can damage flowers and cause them to melt or the colors to fade.

If refrigerating your cake, keep in mind that the moisture of your refrigerator can affect the flowers.

If you have a high humidity refrigerator or walk-in cooler, consider placing the flowers on the cake right before serving, or you can store your cake inside a sealed cardboard box to reduce condensation and humidity damage.

You can also place desiccant packets in the storage box as well.
