What size 5 Petal cutter do you use to make roses. I want to order one but there are alot of sizes. Thanks
depends on how big you want your roses to be.. ..bigger cutter=bigger roses.
I bought the wilton course 3 kit and the cutter came in it. I think the roses are kind of small, but very pretty. I love the ease of using the cutter as opposed to making each petal individually.
I have 50mm all the way to above 100 ... the cutter I used for first cake with GP roses was 80 I think.
So if I am not mistaken - I can make the same beautiful roses usinf the 5 petal cutter? I am having a very hard time using the individual rose petal cutters. What is the difference between them anyway? Please share - I really want to make a rose - but it ends up looking like crap.
I think the individual rose cutters look a little better than the 5 petal. A little more real. But I don't think it is that much of a difference to make up for the ease of using the 5 petal cutter. I think it saves a lot more time, especially when you need it b/c the fondant/gumpaste dries so fast.
Could you please send me the instructions to making a rose with the individual rose petal cutters?
I just bought the wilton 5 petal cutter. I was disappointed to see that you have to cut between the petals, and it's hard (for me anyhow) to make a big rose, even with the bigger one. Maybe I'm rolling it too thin?
Anyhow, with the other 5 petal cutters, not Wilton, do you have to cut between the petals? or does the cutter do it for you?
Texas I have JEM cutters and they are wonderful ... I use no Wilton cutters at all
kendi25, if you go to "Articles"
Cake decorating videos, there aine2 shows you how to do a rose
using a 5 petal cutter.
Haven't attempted this myself yet, but would love to master this as well.
Oh.. I went yesterday to look at her video and it looks like it has been removed when you click on it
If you can't find the video on here then go to Youtube and search "aine2" and you will find the video to make the 5 petal rose
Yes...yummymummy!!! I am trying to get that realistic look. I love roses so much and it is the hardest thing to me, to make
I know what you mean kendi25! I'm not totally unhappy with my rose, it looks beautiful from a top view. But if it's being veiwed from the side, it looks sort of weird...ya know? I have about 40 of these to make and I'm a bit discouraged.
I found a really good tutorial last night about making the open-looking roses. http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/1409721205047057112FcnmtW
I saw this the other day and thought it was excellent....saved the site for future reference.
I actually emailed the person who sent me a whole lot of tips etc., on how to make the former for the petals.
Also you will get a more realistic rose by ruffling the edges more...
ShirleyW is who recommended the all in one JEM cutter to me .... go to her profile and look at hers
Charmaine49: I would love to know how to make the petal formers if you wouldn't mind sharing!
That link was a big help, I'm anxious to try some of those technisques. I think I'll be purchasing the individual petal cutters as well. Thanks!
