This is not my cake (I'm sure you can tell that on your own, lol) it's Sugar Shack's but I wanted to post a picture showing what kind of rose I'm talking about.

This is the style of rose I'm wanting to do on my dd's Sweet 16 cake next month and I wasn't sure if they are done like a Duff Rose or some other way. Any help is much appreciated. icon_biggrin.gif Thanks!

No, I know they are not Duff roses.... but I have also wondered how to make these. I played around last week and tried, but I cant get mine to look "fat" like those are. Thats a cute cake!

Those are ribbon roses, you cut a strip of fondant and fold it in half length wise then roll it.

Thanks so much for that link! icon_biggrin.gif

I didn't think they were Duff Roses, the "petals" didn't look the same.

I cant get the video link to work, but then my POS computer is dumb. I've tried rolling the strip of fondant to make a ribbon rose, but mine always come out flat looking. How do they get these to look fat on the outside?

Its a miracle! The video worked! You fold the strip in half first, then roll. Amazing!

Oh, the little things in life...

you have to fold the strip of fondant in half lengthwise and then roll (with the folded part to the top)

As you roll them you want to pinch the base and then after you want to play with it a little so that it has more curves in it like a rose.
Usually in the back of the Wilton books they have the how to on them. Or atleast the fondant one does.

One more question....can you make them out of straight fondant or is gumpaste or 50/50 better?

Thanks, cupcakemkr for the link I have often wondered how to do them, but didn't know what they were called.
