I would love to learn how to make ribbon roses and leaves. If anyone is willing to explain or know of a turitoial somewhere I would greatly appreciate it. Sometimes I don't have time for the life-like ones I usually make. I have seen some really whimsy looking ones here on CC. I just love the look. Thank you for any help on the subject.

They really are easy.... I'll try to explain. I take a pc. of fondant and put thru pasta machine to the desired thickness. I cut a strip with my multi-ribbon cutter. Fold the strip in half but don't put pressure on the crease, make it a loose crease. then start rolling up up around and around (you pick it up to do this.) I kind of pinch it at the base every few turns, this will give you a more ribbony look. You can twist as large as you want it, creased side should be up on the rose. You then can trim off the base a bit if it's to long. I just cut out leaves with a leaf cutter and give them a pinch at the base.

Hope this helps!

If you have one of the small boxes of white Wilton fondant, the directions and picture are on the back of the box.
