I guess the post on this subject was lost! I really hate what happened on cake central! I think it was handled really well though, the updates that were posted really helped with the waiting. I am like an addict, I was having withdrawals!!!! Anyway, can anyone show me how Duff makes his roses? I would greatly appreciate it!!

Roll out your fondant fairly thin, then cut out 3 circles. Lay them out, barely overlapping them. Roll them up together, starting at the narrow end.. Either cut the roll in the middle or I kindof pinch and twist the two sides apart. Then you can gently fan out the petals.
They're really very easy and look so pretty! I've heard of folks using 5 circles too, but I haven't tried that yet.
There is a picture of the first ones I did on my pink and brown baby shower cake.

There are a few pictures with directions in the template/sketches section too. I love making these roses!

I have gotten several PM about these roses and I guess the pics are hard to find so I thought I'd put them in a link.


These are the links for the pics. When I did mine I over lapped them top to bottom and only over lapped the bottom 1/4 so they are more full. When I rolled them I rolled top to bottom also, believe it or not it does make a difference. HTH

Jodie explained it very well. It helps to look at the pic. in the gallery of how the circles are laid out. These are the easiest roses that I've ever made & they look great. I use 4 circles when I'm making mine. You can make them with different numbers of circles & thickness until you find which one you like the best. You can have a look at mine. They're on the teapot cake.

I have done something very similar by varying the thickness, size and number of circles. I even did this method to make the tiny roses for my castle cake. I did roses in 3, 2 and 1. So easy and everyone loved them. A very fun way to make roses! icon_biggrin.gif

I have also played with different size circles. If you have the set of wilton circle fondant cutters all three are great for different sizes. I use the smallest
circle to make buds but you need to roll your fondant really thin for this. I've not yet played with different number of circles but now I will for sure!

Thanks everyone for all of the great tips! thumbs_up.gif
