OK Kylie,

Time to give up the goods...how the heck did you get that so beautiful and fluid and fluffy? That is fantastic! Will you teach us? Please?

thanks guys

carrie i have no idea why it worked this time when in the past i could not get them to look like this.. i will try to explain as best i can...lol

i used about a golf ball size of fondant and rolled it out ( i use normal cooking spray so it doesnt stick to the bench) i just rolled out a longish sausage probably about 7" long and 5" or 6" wide then folded this over and kind of gathered it up in places then just rolled it up like you do for the normal ribbon roses... instead of rolling it so the edges were level i rolled them lower each time i went around (am i making any sense...lol).

for the leaves i cut triangles out of fondant then folded the corners into the centre puckering the fondant as i went...

i hope this makes sense i am so terrible at describing how i do things...

This may be a silly question, but what is the rose on? A cake? It looks so perfect!

Those are exactly what I've been trying to make! I can't do it yet, but maybe using your tips will help.

Your rose is gorgeous, and I also think you should write a tutorial with pictures!!!

They look just like the ones Colette Peters makes in her book "Cakes To Dream On". Nice job!

to make it more fluffy put cornstarch in the middle so that the fondant doesn't stick together.

A tutorial with pictures, gosh i have never done that before, i wouldn't no where to start.

the only good advice i can give it to just practise and try different technique's for rolling them up. its basically a ribbon rose, same method just puckered more and larger. i just used a picture to look at until mine resembled something like it..

Perhaps a moderator could help you with how to make a tutorial, or ask someone who has made one? Thanks for the pointers, though!
