Hi All,

Does anyone have a good website to buy the rosebud cones for gumpaste roses, or a simple way to make your own. I have a cake coming up with 100 roses on it.

Thanks
Nikki

Here's a tutorial on how to make them. Some have used hershey's kisses for the center part too. I always just make mine from gumpaste

I'm sitting here waiting on Hurricane Ike to come, and made about 60 GP rose cones in less than an hour. I'm going to do another 60 and then make another triple batch of gumpaste. If we lose power, I'm going to have plenty of gumpaste work to do to keep me occupied. icon_biggrin.gif

Sorry I don't get it but why would you buy the centers instead of just making them?

I don't remember where but I read somewhere that jelly beans can be used too. Wish I could remember where I saw that!

CakePro and all others in the path of Ike - keeping my fingers crossed for you all - stay safe! Another couple of ideas for rose or peony centers --- First Impressions makes molds in three sizes for centers - you can use bits of leftover paste and have them on hand. In a class with Colette, we used the "cheap" small styrofoam balls - the kind with kinda large-textured air pockets - and pinched them into shape. This lightens the finished weight of the flower, and that type of styrofoam can easily be compacted into a cone shape. They are sold in a big range of sizes, too.

Thank you all for your wonderful ideas. I thought too about making them but was worried about the weight. I will try Collettes method and see how that works. Thanks Nikki

You can buy these from a few places online. Just do a google search for celbuds. I have seen them on globalsugarart.com; sugarart.com; makeawishcakeshop.co.uk; fondantsource.com and a lot of other websites but you have to research them because I haven't compared prices yet.

I hope this helps! I am thinking of getting them as well. I think it is great to make them yourself but there is just something to be said for the convenience of not having to wait for the buds to dry before you can begin making your flowers! Either way, enjoy making your roses! icon_smile.gif
