What’s the big deal with these flowers anyway?

Sugar Flowers are shelf-stable at room temperature, due to their sugar content and low moisture. Because they have such a long shelf life, they are perfect for keeping around for last-minute cake orders, or ordering ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about delayed shipping.

It’s best to store the flowers out of direct sunlight (it can fade the colors) as well as in 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.
