Can someone tell me how to make very large GP roses? Is there a cutter that big? If so, where can I find one?

How big is "huge"??? Tell me that and I'd be able to help you.

You can always layer your outer petals to make the rose look larger.
That's what I usually do.

About this big (see link above), maybe a little bit smaller.

Don't use a cutter...make a teardrop shape from your gumpaste and roll it out into a petal then frill and vein as normal. You'll get thinner petals, a more natural petal shape and no ragged edges icon_smile.gif

Tell David (at Avalon Deco) I said "hi!" I may have cleaned out his inventory of XL white formal roses. Seriously, I can sell this size for $6 each and they cost maybe $2 to buy. I made enough roses already in my lifetime.

I will definitely tell him you said hi. I'll even tell him that he should give you a HUGE discount next time you order, too - just for being such a rockstar! icon_wink.gif By the way, I made a post in the General forum.

If anyone can help out with this question, too, I would greatly appreciate it!
