good Morning, When I do my roses, I put a big glob of buttercream on first and tehn I place the roses on top of the glob of buttercream and then I make some leaves to hide the buttercream..

Hope that helps!

DITTO, I always have my turntable tilted when I apply the flowers and kind of let each one crust before doing the next. I think the roses are beveled (slanted bottoms), so they aren't sticking straight out the side. Just my opinion.

When you make your roses put a small piece of waxed paper on your rose nail first. slide the paper off and put your rose in the fridge to chill then you can pick them up with your hands and adheare them to the side with a small dab of icing.

Those roses could also be royal icing roses piped on toothpicks.

I use a similiar method except I stick them in the freezer just until they firm up, otherwise they will sweat as they thaw out.
