Fresh Flowers are all the rage right now. Have you seen this?

I wanted to take the idea of fresh flowers, bring to a bunting format and use a flower that anyone can find ( Carnations strike again, lol ). I adore Ranunculus, but they are NEVER readily available where I tend to shop. This fresh floral  ‘bunting’ is easy and really brings a nice element of girly to your standard cake. The flowers could be arrange in a different pattern to create other shapes. I’m thinking a heart, circle and even a monogram.
