Black Open Rose READY TO SHIP sugar flower for wedding cake decorations, gumpaste flowers, fondant cake toppers


This item is ready to ship within 3 business days! Shipping takes an additional 1-3 days; please contact me if your event date is close to confirm your flowers will arrive in time.

These open rose sugar flowers in black are gorgeous, unique additions to your wedding cake decorations. This beautiful, unusual flower makes a striking statement on a cake, whether your style is fondant or buttercream, modern or vintage, art deco or goth! I make each rose by hand when you order, so they are truly a work of custom art!

The open roses come in four sizes:

Small rose- approx. 2.5-3"
Medium rose- approx. 3-3.5"
Large rose - approx. 4"
Extra large rose - approx 5"

The 15 petals are individually wired and adjustable to give you the greatest flexibility in arranging your display.

This flower is a great choice for weddings, bridal showers, quinceaƱeras, birthdays, and celebrations. Pair this with other black and white flowers like anemeones, white roses, and even white & gold peonies

Please let me know if you need custom colors. I can also create the stamens in white, gold, rose gold, or silver upon request.

Colors may look slightly different due to screen differences, and because each flower is custom made. Just like in nature, no two flowers are identical! I always strive to provide beautiful, high quality flowers, and do my best to match color and style.

A note on shipping:
Each flower typically takes 2 weeks to create them and give them time to dry before shipping, and shipping takes 2-3 days with USPS Priority mail. Shipping costs include the priority mail postage, as well as tracking and insurance, and specially designed packaging. Each flower is carefully padded and packaged to minimize breakage and assure that your flower arrives in the same pristine condition that they are in before shipping. Although breakage can rarely occur, if you experience any problems, please contact me to discuss your options!

All flowers are shipped USPS Priority, unless otherwise noted. Shipping takes 1-3 days. The closer to Tampa you are, the faster your flowers will arrive! ;) Local pickup options may also be available.

These flowers are made with edible materials such as powdered sugar, egg whites, and gums, but please note they are not for consumption. The wires and other materials such as non-toxic paints and glazes, make these flowers inedible.

Gumpaste can last almost indefinitely if taken care of properly. Keep your flowers away from light, moisture, and heat to keep them preserved. Humidity and temperature changes from refrigeration may cause flowers to melt.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to make custom sugar flower orders for you! Please share with me your event date, the size of your cake, the colors you're using, any inspiration photos (bouquets, other cake photos, etc), and I'll work with you to create something unique. Custom orders may take longer to create, so be sure to place your order in advance, I recommend at least 4-6 weeks before your event!

Care instructions

Gumpaste flowers have an extremely long shelf life, due to their sugar content and low moisture. As long as the flowers are taken care of properly, they'll last for years! 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. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Each flower arrives in a box suitable for storage and comes with a care guide.

How soon will I receive my flowers?

Processing time is typically 1-2 weeks. Some larger orders, like the arrangements or a custom order, may take 3 weeks. Shipping takes 3 days via USPS Priority Mail.
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. If you need your flowers within 2 weeks, please select "Rush Processing" at checkout.
There is also a "Rush Shipping" option, so that your flowers will arrive in 1-2 days via USPS Priority Express.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions!

Will the flower look exactly like the photo?

Each flower is made to order, so some differences may occur. Just like in nature, no two flowers are alike! Colors may vary slightly as well due to screen differences.

Are sugar flowers edible?

Sugar flowers are made with edible ingredients (gumpaste, egg whites, sugar) however they also contain 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.

I live in Tampa. Can I pick up my flowers?

At this time, local pickup is not available. All orders will be shipped with USPS Priority Mail or First Class Mail where available, but since you are local, you should receive your flowers within one, possibly two, business days after shipping. Processing times are still 1-2 weeks, however rush options are available at checkout.
