What is the trick to making tall roses? Mine look like cabbages no matter what I do.

TIA

How do you mean "tall"? As in the stems or as in the way the petals form?

Start the 1st row of petals slightly above your center. Open up the petals as you add next rows. What I mean when I say "open up" is drop the back of your decorator bag as you add rows of petals. Also make sure you arch each individual petal. Practice......Practice.......Practice
