  • Why don't you use fresh flowers on cakes?
    Katie uses either sugar flowers or high quality artificial flowers on all of her cakes. Artificial flowers are sterilised with a food safe sanitiser before being added to the cake. Fresh flowers are sprayed with toxic pesticides in the growing process and many varieties of flowers and greenery are poisonous and should not be placed anyway near food. Katie does not allow other people or vendors to add fresh flowers to her cakes. Katie wants to ensure your cake is safe to consume and is not damaged by others adding decorations to the cake. All Katie Young's Cakes are made in a licensed kitchen at a high standard of food safety. Fresh Flowers are NOT food safe.
