I found this pic on Peggy Porschen's website, and I LOVE these little roses! Anyone know what they're made of and how??

I happened to pick up one of her books at Barnes & Noble (on the bargain aisle!) a couple of weeks ago and she has these roses in there on her "American Sweetheart" cake. It's pink fondant strips about 1/2 inch by 1 1/2 inch rolled up then let dry. She uses royal icing to stick the dried rosebuds on the cake and then pipes small leaves in RI.

I think it's an AMAZING look - one of the many reasons I picked up the book.

Hope this helps,

Karen

Those are pretty, and probably the only roses I would be able to make! I'll have to go pick up the book, thanks for sharing!

I think these are similar to the roses I made by mistake... I tried to make the regualr ribbon roses, but I didnt know you had to fold the strip in half first. Cut your strip and roll it up... that'll give you the sharp edges instead of the fat ones like in a normal ribbon rose. HTH!

That's how you do it! I just uploaded a cake with these little rosettes on it.

I'm doing a cake for a little boy who is turning one, and I think I may sneak some of these into the design somewhere!
