A pressed floral cake design involves embedding delicate, dried flowers or petals directly onto the surface of a wedding cake. These flowers are typically preserved through a pressing process, where they are carefully arranged between layers of absorbent materials and left to dry over time. Once dried, the pressed flowers are gently adhered to the cake using edible glue or positioned atop a layer of frosting.
