Fresh gerberas are suitable for cake decoration, but if they are unavailable, substitute silk flowers. If you prefer edible decorations, make gerbera daisies out of royal icing, gum paste or rolled fondant.
Make a statement with a few large, fresh blooms atop the cake, or scatter gerberas around the base. Alternatively, attach fondant daisies to the cake and pipe green gel stems for them. If you make a sheet cake, place small flowers on each piece.
When decorating a cake with fresh gerberas, use only blooms that you grew yourself or that you purchased from an organic grower. Pesticide residue on the flowers can leach onto the cake. Inspect flowers for pests and disease before placing them on the cake.
